Saint-Symphorien Church, Vieil-Baugé

By Ray42
I took these pictures at Saint-Symphorien Church, Vieil-Baugé, in the Pays de la Loire< France. Evidentally it was built this way and there are several others in the area. This one not only twisted but bent as well. There are quite a few in France, some in Italy and a few in Germany, and also there is one in St Mary and All Saints in Chestfield in the Peak District in approximately 1360, although they say it was because of unseasoned wood. According to the French they were built this way.

Image 2 for me. Great calendar picture. Sky a little wishy washy in image 1 IMHO.

Nice series and what a bizarre piece of architecture! I had never seen any churches like that before.
