Romanesque Church Hunt Looking for churches and other France adventures.

Introduction

Filed under: Church Previews — Karen @ 6:45 pm

This blog is devoted to the search for Romanesque churches, primarily in France. It’s hard to explain why these thousand-year-old buildings are so compelling, but even the fact that they have stood guard over the countryside for so many years, while all around the daily life has continued is a source of wonder.

A small group of friends and I go every year to relax in the countryside in France–drinking wine, eating good food, swimming, visiting markets, following our individual artistic pursuits. But our tourist spots (once we have seen the Pont du Gards, the chateaux, the ‘must-sees’ for visitors) are always the local Romanesque churches.

In this blog, I will share research, past, present and future adventures, photos, art and all bits of info emanating from this topic.  Welcome to our adventures!
