… open the doors and here's all the people

Well, not exactly all the people, but we did see a number of murals. When it was built in the late 11th century, the Church of Saint Martin de Crouy originally included a nave, a narrow chancel and an apse which was made into a sacristy n the 17th century. During the 16th century, the chapel was elevated and an aisle added. The murals were discovered in 1946, with a Christ in Majesty, Saint Peter, and perhaps Saint John with two other apostles.
L’église de Saint-Martin de Crouy date de la fin du 11e siècle. Elle comprenait alors une nef, un chœur étroit et une abside, transformée en sacristie au 17e siècle. Au 16e siècle, une chapelle a été élevée et un bas-côté ajouté. Des peintures murales ont été découvertes en 1946, avec un Christ en majesté, Saint-Pierre et peut-être Saint-Jean, ainsi que deux autres apôtres.
