The carvings surround the altar were of unbelievable detail. It's hard to imagine the time and patience that was put into carving these out of stone! Such a lost art. And the stone floor is original, we walked where pilgrams hundreds of years ago walked.
After we had a snack, Cindy and Mike each had an apple tarte and I had a lemon tarte. One of the nice things about french desserts is that they are not overly sweet like ours tend to be. Just enough sweet to appreciate the other flavors. A neighbor told me I would lose weight on this trip especially in Italy. Well maybe I'll lose the weight I've gained in France....we'll see.
Tonight we pack up and tomorrow fly to Rome. Another city, another adventure.
