Old Church

Thursday, May 28, 2009 

The ancient church in our town (of 4 discrete buildings) turns out to be more ancient than thought, built in the 10th century. It is in need of some stabilization.

Some architects were documenting the layout of the stones (a stone-by-stone process) for future restoration work and we had a chance to look around inside. This is a rare treat as it is only open once a year for mass.

Swallows nest in the church walls and are very entertaining at dusk.
