Saint Martin's La Liege

Saint Martin's church in the small village La Liege which sits 17km northeast of Loches, dates from around the 12th century.

It has, like most of the churches of the region, gone through a number of changes over the centuries. The majority of these changes took place in the 15th century with the addition of the choir, apse and bell tower.

The vaults of the apse and choir required renovation work during the 18th century

Where's Joan? Our search for her here was rewarded by this haunting statue which saw her taking on a facial expression that for us is unusual and somewhat endearing!


Worth popping in for this alone.
