The Eastern front of the church has been restored, and recently the extensive scaffold has been struck, showing off the fine tuffeau façade,
including the four statues of the evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
Unusually, the church faces West - away from the sunrise and the holy city of Jerusalem - whats that all about, Cardy & Jacques?
Do we need a Dan Brown to write a mystic story as justification?
