Transparency and reflection, Montpeyroux

Other view. March 23rd, 2011.

Through the door of the Saint-Etienne chapel of the 16th century, in Montpeyroux near the hamlet of Saint-Etienne baths, seen by transparency, a stained glass enlightened by the sun, creates the illusion of an coloured ectoplasm floating in the outside landscape reflected by the decorated window.

The chapel Saint-Etienne of the 16th century, closed down, was provided with a door and stained glasses of Sally Scott. It is not more of use than to the artistic exhibitions.

Montpeyroux is in the perimeter of CAUSSES and CÉVENNES registered on the UNESCO world heritage list since June 28th, 2011.

MONTPEYROUX is a french commune, located in the departement of Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 1224 Montpeyrousiens in 2007, distributed out of 22.4 km², that is to say 54.6 hab/km².

At the border of the foothills of the Causse du Larzac and Séranne mountain, and the plain of the Hérault, Montpeyroux is known for the quality of its environment, and the quality of its wine from an excellent terroir.

Near the valley and Gorges of the Herault river, Montpeyroux was on a pilgrimage route that led to the abbeys of Aniane and Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, and was crossed by the paths of the salter, and by drovers' road where to go yet transhumance of sheep between the Larzac causse and hérault plain.
