Day 14 in France was a sightseeing day – the walk from Mougau Bihan had damaged a knee and so today was slower, which meant churches! Locmélar was the first stop and we moved on to Bodilis on a grey day. The church was built between 1594 and 1601, but there are discrepancies about this on the French Government site.
The photograph above is by Henri Deneux, one of the official photographers for the Ministry of Culture, and, judging by the dirt road, must be early 20C.
The South Porch is ornate, and in addition to the Apostles there is a frieze of curious, carved figures which seem to be very primitive interpretations, and representations.
Inside the church is ornate, with another barrel-vaulted ceiling painted blue, and wonderfully carved beams. But somehow it didn’t capture my imagination. Perhaps it was the greyness of the day, perhaps I was getting ‘churched’ out.
As always there were marvellous details in the church.
