This little dented church has a crazy charm!

 

 

Do you know the little village of Petit-Palais and Cornemps?


If so, you know its church with its beautifully decorated 12th century façade. But do you know the second church of the commune? There I pique your curiosity!


I'm talking about the church of Notre-Dame de Cornemps. From its small promontory, it doesn't look majestic... but this little dented church has a crazy charm. Going back to the 11th century, it still bears the scars of the past. Its nave was partly destroyed during the Wars of Religion in the 16th century and therefore narrowed.


Restorations in the 19th century gave the church we see today. Want to go inside after ringing the bell? Ask the neighbours for the key...


There you will walk on a tile floor with Lily flowers, symbol of the Virgin. In short, you are in history!
