Photographer's Note

The church of Saint-Vincent, which stands above the village of Saint-Germain-de-Confolens dates from the 12th century. It was formerly the chapel to the adjacent château, which is located behind this point of view and is now in ruins. It is unusual for a Romanesque church in that its plan takes the form of a Greek cross. The building in the foreground is the former presbytery.

The picture is a vertical stitch of three images.

Saint-Germain-de-Confolens is a French commune in the Charente département located at the confluence of the Vienne and Issoire rivers, which meet just outside the village of the same name. With a population of around 100, its inhabitants are known as Saint-Germanotis.

The French Wikipedea site has an article about the geography and history of the area here. The above information was extracted and freely translated from that article.
