Photographer's Note

Corme-Royal is a French commune in the Charente-Maritime département, Poitou-Charente region. With a population of just over 1500, it lies 15 kilometres to the west of the town of Saintes. It was known as "Corme-la-Forêt" during the Revolution.

The church at Corme-Royal is dedicated to Saint Nazaire. Dating from the 12th century and Romanesque in appearance, it was original the abbey church of a Benedictine priory, which depended on the Abbey of Notre-Dame in Saintes. It was partly fortified in the 15th century.

Due to lack of room, this picture is a stitch of two images.
