Postcard from Vensac : Painted Pillars – Piliers peints

102_painted_pillarsWe are having a little weekend away in the Médoc area near Bordeaux. These painted pillars are in the Romanesque church of Saint Peter in Vensac below. The apse was built in the 12th century while the nave and polychrome decorations were added in the 17th century along with the spire.
Nous passons un petit week-end dans le Médoc. Ces piliers peints se trouvent dans l’église romane Saint-Pierre à Vensac, datée pour une part du XIIe siècle (abside) complétée aux XVIIe siècle par une nef ornée de décorations polychromes et d’une flèche.
