Romanesque collegial church Saint-Junien built from XIe to XIVe century. (6 images).
(I proposed this photograph a few days ago, and quickly withdrew it due to visible problem of assembly, now corrected).

Chorus
Fresco

Its chorus is almost as vast as its nave. She is regarded as one of most beautiful and larger church of the Limousin.
The fresco of the nave, XIIe century, represents the 24 old men of the Apocalypse.

At the beginning of VIe century, a Hungarian ascetic, Saint-Amand, is established on right bank of Vienne river joined by Saint-Junien son of a Cambrai count, which after the death of Saint-Amand, (on June 25, 500), achieves many miracles, of which cure of the small son of bishop Rorice Ier, future Rorice II. After the death of Saint-Junien, (on October 16, 540), an oratory, then a church and abbey of canons of Saint-Augustin were built. Châtellenies settled of VIIIe in IXe century.

Saint-Junien is a french commune, located in the department of Haute-vienne of the Limousin area, populated of 10666 Saint-Juniauds, distributed on 59 km², that is to say 181 hab./km².

Camille Corot (1796-1875), liked to paint in Saint-Junien, on the banks of Glane.
The city is bordered in the south by Vienne river, and the west by its affluent, Glane river.
Saint-Junien is, as the remainder of Haute-Vienne district, in the cultural zone occitane.

Hello Joel! Amazing church, wonderful old architecture. Good POV and capture. Very good light, bright and colours. Original work. Good luck!

Hello Joël,
A fine point of view on this lovely church, which gives us a good idea of its size and shows off the interesting architecture to great effect.

Good clarity and sharpness in this presentation of architecture view.

Very nicely cropped composition of this church of such history that tells how France going back to the centuries ago. The construction of the wall shows good craftsmanship of work and tells a little about the era of the structure.

tfs, bill

Salut Joel,
Un stitch au résultat étonant, une perspective déformante que j'aime bien.
Au final c'est original et agréable.
Bonne journée,
JB.

Joel,
This is a great church and you have documented it nicely. The WS shots are nice and give us a nice view to the inside of this great church. Your composition is fine showing the building from an upward angle providing depth and direction. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and detail.
TFS,
Asa

Olá Joel

Bon dimanche
