churches although in very small villages are beautiful and require more
than one rapid glance. You, who pass by there, take your time, provide
with field-glasses for better appreciating the splendid chevet such as
the ones of : Mornac, Vaud, Rioux, Retaud or Echillais. Climb at
sun-set some west-front such as :Corme-écluse, Thaims ,
L'Abbaye-aux-Dames , Le Douhet or Nieul-les-Saintes. Ask the key near
the Town-hall or a villager if you are locked up outside and discover
all these 'chefs d'ouvre'. Open your eyes, so you will discover the
bénédictines advertising of the centuries XI and
XII th and in order to
help you for a better understanding them we humbly tried their to give
again the sens that they deserved originally. Unfortunately I am not
enough familiar with the Shakespeare language ! so improve your French
with this opportunity!
