I passed through this little village one day just before returning to the UK for winter. I stopped to take a few photos, as I thought it was quite a pretty place and I felt sure that with its old church, I would be able to find lots of history; it seems I was wrong and I could find nothing of interest on the internet at all!! Sorry, but I hope you will enjoy the photos nevertheless.
This sign reads the Church of Biénat which I also found confusing in the village of Biennac! I am not sure that I can even do any research in the village if I should go there again, as it is deep in the countryside, where little English is spoken. I may find it very difficult with my hopeless French!
Note the large stone sticking out from the wall of the church here; my guess is that is the old drainage from a sink which may have been behind the wall. We have one similar on the outside wall at our house with a very old stone sink on the inside. Ours has been restored and is now simply a feature.
I loved this little alcove built into the wall of a house just at the back of the church. The post gets delivered to the blue box, while the pink box was installed especially for the baguette delivery!
Do you think the villagers cook their meals in what looks like a communal pot and have parties here?
I just loved these old stone barns
