Photographer's Note

Eglise de Saint Lambert des Bois.
In this Easter Sunday, why not a papagolfade which I dedicate to my friend Philippe !
This small church, very simple has a harmonious and beautiful architecture.
Admire this bell-tower and its tiles of wood and this small porch, the dating from the Xème century!
The commune of Saint-Lambert was strongly marked by the presence close to the monastery of Port-Royal-des Champs, which was the high-place of jansénisme of the middle of the XVIIe century until 1709, date of the closing of the monastery by order of Louis XIV.
The Saint-Lambert-des-Bois life was organized, right from the start, around the first vault dating from Xème century, then, little by little, around the Church and of the Cemetery which preserves the remainders of the Nuns of Port-Royal.
The commune was called, until the end of the XVIIème century, GERMAINVILLE. Since IVème century, the church was dedicated to Saint Blaise, bishop Armenian, of international reputation. In 1538, it was devoted to Saint Lambert, bishop of Liege, born in Maëstricht in VIIIème century, and its name was given to the village at the beginning of the XVIIIème century.
