Church in the Frescos Valley.

One sight.
Other sight.

Notre-Dame d'Antigny, Romanesque church of the 11th century, in the valley of Gartempe in Montmorillonnais Country.

Its walls are decorated frescos dating from the 14th century.

The valley of Gartempe concentrates from Montmorillon to Saint-Savin, in Vienna, several romanesque churches decorated with frescos of the 14th century, and is called for that, the Frescos Valley.

Gartempe is a river of Poitou and of the Limousin, which takes its source close to the village of Pétillat, the commune of Peyrabout in the department of Creuse, and is thrown in the Creuse river close of "la Roche-Posay" in the department of Vienne, after a way of almost 200 kilometers. It crosses remarkable canyons in granitic landscapes, towards the “Doors of the Hell” at Lathus-Saint-Rémy in Vienna.

Antigny is a french commune, located in the department of Vienne of the Poitou-Charentes area, populated of 598 Antignois in 1999, distributed out of 45 km², that is to say 13 hab./km²

Bonjour Joël

Les églises fleurissent sur TE en ce dimanche, et pourtant c'est la tienne qui pour moi est sortie du lot... Certainement dû à son étonnante architecture et à son auvent peu fréquent.
Le ciel chargé complète joliment la composition, et donne du relief.
Jolie présentation, bravo.

Amitiés
Karine

Hello Joël,
I like the point of view here with the curving roads either side of the church. The tones and textures are well rendered under a cloudy sky. Seems a quiet and peaceful village, like many in France.

Hi Joel,
an another beautiful discovery from France, splendid TE work with attractive composition and nostalgic mood, the picturesque clouds adds a lot to the photo, Tfs! Have a nice sunday!

Hello Joël,

Ce toit est vraiment original, avec son long pan, elle est fantastique comme architecture, avec le cile gri, elle ressort à merveille, un très beau contraste, et la maison tout a gaugne de même style, superbe.

bravo et amitié

Nicou

Bonjour Joël
Elle est très belle cette image dominicale. Une église très particulière avec son préau sur le côté. J'ai l'impression que tu as fait un stock de photos de ta région d'origine.
Je te souhaite une bonne fin de journée.
Nicole

Ciao Joel,
ecco la chiesa della Domenica, bellissima l'architettura e splendido cielo, come sempre molto interessante la nota.

Bonjour Joel,
Your presentation of this ancient church and its surroundings is beautiful and sympathetic -- excellent composition and very pleasing light and delicate colors. The valley sounds wonderful and I look forward to more of your posts from this area.
Best regards,
Mary

Hallo Joel!
What a humble and somehow "human" church - and a venerable one! I like this "massive" architecture which seems to be constructed for eternity. In combination with your excellent note an overall contribution in terms of TE! Your point of view couldn't be better!
Greetings from Germany!
Frank

Ciao caro Joel,
un'altra bella chiesa che si aggiunge alla tua preziosa gallery di antiche chiese francesi. Molto interessante anche il WS che ci mostra l'interno con la bellissima vetrata. Le chiese francesi sono veramente un grande patrimonio artistico e culturale.
Ciao, ti auguro una buona settimana!
Paolo

Ton retour avec cette tres belle prise d'Antigny est brillant, Joel. Sans humains, cette vue fait allusion aux maquettes. Qu'on fait avec tant da passion. Tes photos provoquent la meme passion, d'aller sur place et verifier si vraiment ces merveilels existent.

Grand merci, de meme pour tes visites qui m'encouragent chaque fois.

Hi Joel,
nice the view of this old Church in the Frescos valley,with its characteristic roof.The empty road is an asset to to the composition,as the sharpness and the clarity of the scene.Well done.

Have a nice week,danos

Bonjour Joël,

La courbe de la route est un atout à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'église Notre-Dame d'Antigny et des maison. Le sujet est bien cadré. L'intensité de la lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hi Joël,
Charming, small and simple church in an attractive village and composition.
Good soft filiterd light.
Regards, Gerrit

The old church is quite austere with few adornments, and you have presented it to us well with additional information thanks to the WSs. This one is well composed with the curving road almost encirclng the church. The thin clouds have ensured the lighting is very gentle.
Kath

Bonjour Joel
un bon cadrage avec cet éloignement et la route devant qui nous permet d'élargir le point de vue de cette église et des alentours
un ciel un peu tumultueux avec des trouees de bleu quand même
belle présentation

Bonsoir Joël,
Cette magnifique église romane avec une tour très particulier. Très bon cadre et les détails.
Il semble que le ciel n'était pas clair dans tous vos jours de vacances, mais le nord-ouest, au moins en Espagne, de sorte, est ainsi, tout simplement profiter de l'été.
Amicalement,
Charo
