DSCN2190Far left: Church of Notre-Dame-la-Grande in Poitiers; left close up of the beautiful carvings around the doorway, which would also have been painted in the 11th-12th century. DSCN2191Below: inside Notre-Dame-la-Grande.DSCN2194 DSCN2192Also a couple of pix of the pillars – each one was painted with a different geometric design and in different colours so the overall effect is stunning – but it’s hard to capture how magnificent it all is in a photograph! Tomorrow I’ll post pix of Eleanor’s Castle, now the Palais de Justice.
