Burgundy

Renaissance doorway in Vézelay, France, uphill to the abbey

The Cistercian Abbey of Vézelay with its stunning apse featuring primitive flying buttresses

The choir of the Abbey of Vézelay

The nave of the Abbey of Vézelay. Notice the polychromatic voussures in the doubleau arches

The west front and tympanum of the abbey of Vézelay. Some of the interior figurative sculptures have lost body parts at the Reformation

The doorbell outside the porter's lodge at the abbey of Fontenay.

Weathered crucifix outside the priory close at Fontenay to mark the rallying point for pilgrims and guests before being allowed inside

The church bell at the abbey of Fontenay. The church has gone through many transformations but the bell structure is still there

On the pilgrim road

One of the many abbatial buildings at Fontenay. Peaceful and quiet

Down the road from Champagne into Burgundy, lost track of where I was and what this is
