Another beautiful church in France. The outside is stunning with lovely carvings. The inside is also Beautiful and very reflective of its time. There is a beautiful organ and lovely wall murals . Don't miss visiting it on a walk around Bordeau.

I love the Catholic Churches. So barrocan, this is a medieval one. The altar is very ornamented. Quiet. Nice for a break when walking around.

Notre Dame Church gives you that sense of quiet incantation. You just feel the need to be silent, as you are awed at the same time. It has great light that let you see the art in the windows.

We came upon this church when we were looking for somewhere else so wandered in for a look. Not on the same scale as the grand Cathedrale Saint Andre but it was interesting to see.
