Moments in Capestang

November 11, 2014

I made a point of visiting the church in Capestang, Collégiale St. Etienne. This medieval church was built as a school for canons, but the original vision, for a much larger cathedral, was never realized, most likely because the plague and religious wars created a major distraction. The stained glass, from the mid-1800s, is lovely, and such a surprise here in the hinterlands.

The rest of this eclectic bunch of photos are from walks around town these past few weeks, including one of M. Didier, my favorite produce man at the market, various local cats and the troupe l’oeil, which is tucked away in a corner of town.
