Abbey church in Selles-sur-Cher

The church in Selles-sur-Cher was established as part of an abbey in the sixth century. It's been rebuilt a few times since then on the same site, over the crypt of the original church which still contains the sarcophagus of Saint Eusice, the abbey's founder.

The southern aisle looking from near the transept toward the western end of the church.

The church is officially called l'Abbatiale Notre-Dame-la-Blanche. The building certainly is white, owing to the local white limestone used in so much of the region's architecture.

  2. Very serene. I like the perspective with the vaulting ending with the stained glass.
    I'm obligated to mention how much I like that shock of royal blue. What exactly is that? Just the end of the table?
