going on a weekday drive... to Chauvigny

countryside Chateau on the way to Chauvigny

Today was mostly a driving day on our pilgrimage of the great French cathedrals, with one long stop at the medieval town of Chauvigny. 

Situated on a prominent high point over the River Sienne, the town was much bigger than I expected. Since we only had one afternoon there, we focused on one particular treasure of a church, Églesse St-Pierre, Romanesque in style, but with some (now-familiar) Gothic elements. 

I think we're all tired, but ending each day with great--and truly beautiful-looking--food and wine... I'll try to post soon some pictures of some of the beautiful plates we've been served so far!
