The town in the church


The interior of the beautiful Eglise Saint Nicolas in Fontvielle. I'm not always a fan of new churches but like this one, love the interior with the mural representing the buildings you see in Fontvieille - the area of Monaco reclaimed from the sea. You can read the history of this church and see the the exterior by clicking on the link.

The old olive oil mill we've been looking at during the last few days is located on the opposite side of the place to this church. The smaller photo will give more detail of the mural - please click to enlarge.

Oh Jilly,
This is lovely. It's a new church that looks like it has been there for ages. i enjoyed seeing the murals etc.
Thanks for sharing this little treasure with us.

At first, I thought this was really old. Glad to see the new is just as unique as the ancient. Beautiful.
