21. Chapelle de Notre-Dame-du-Haut RONCHAMP


Corey,

If you were curious about the interior look of this
chapel here is a postcard for you. I didn't mention before
that it has a sloping floor which focuses attention
towards the altar. Also as you can see the junction
between roof and walls has a continuous slight gap so
that a crack of daylight gleams through. The whole
chapel is a sculpture to be seen in the round.
The site is high on a hill near Belfort in the
Haute-Saone departement. If you have a chance
to visit this place you won't regret the effort.

Warm regards
R
