My flash wasn´t strong enough to get a good picture of the church. But i liked the impressive doors very much too..
This church used to belong to the monestary and the benedictine monks used to pray here.It was build at the end of the 12th, beginning of the 13th century. In 1821 it became the parish church.
After the revolution many price objects from this church were taken to the Cathedral of Bordeaux.
If you walk to the front of the abbey, you have a great view over the Dropt and the Dropt valley. Just be aware that it can be windy here. At least in the winter.
If you follow the signs for the tour around the town, you will come into the hall of the old monestary. When you do, don´t forget to look up.
The first place we came to when arriving in La Reole was the train station. It had a parking lot. After some pics of the bridge in town in front and to the right if standing infront of the station we watched a train arrive. For some reason certain pics of the conductor stand out in my mind even now two and a half years later....
La Reole has a trainstation and if you intend to walk or cycle in this area the train might be a very good way of getting here from Bordeaux. i think it is the train Bordeaux-Toulouse but of that i´m not sure.
The weather was the worst part about this day. It took a LOT of effort to walk through the wind. The rain was cold and soaking as the umbrellas we had got pounded like the deathstar.
Favorite thing: i don´t know where this tour begins and the text is all in french. But i´m sure the tourist information can help you with an english translation. If the tourist information is closed, just follow these signs and they wil get you to all the interesting spots in La Reole.
