Around Town

Around Town, Volume II. I’ll probably wind up with a bunch of these “around town” posts, as I just can’t stop myself taking pictures every time we head out for a walk! We like to wander around the Cité Royale and marvel at the ancient-ness of it all – it is simply beautiful, and we are happy that it’s literally right at our doorstep.

Here are a few snaps from our recent wanderings.

L'Église de Saint Ours, in the evening light. I can't stop taking photos of this church, I think it's just gorgeous.

This is Agnes Sorel’s tomb, in l’Église de Saint Ours. It’s so dark in the church, the photos don’t turn out that well, but my goodness, the detail in the carvings and stone work in this church is incredible! The stained glass it quite lovely too, but I am so amazed by the intricacy of the carvings and the beautiful coved ceilings.

Great detail on the iron gates dotted around town.

There was a plein air painting demonstration happening last weekend by the church (unfortunately was mostly rained out by the only rain we've really seen out here!)

Yesterday we finally toured through the inside of the Donjon and the Logis Royale — so full of history and really incredible to behold. More to come later on those visits!
