The Oratory


The Oratory

This curious little building is situated in the vineyards above L'Horte. The Oratory has seven sides and a central pillar and table which usually has an attractive display of flowers. Each of the seven roundels above the open doorways is filled with different coloured abstract stained glass. A tablet above the main entrance (on the opposite side to the photo) reads (loosely translated) "Here stands the Oratory of St John of the Peace of God erected by Marguerite Massot. House of prayer and contemplation for men and women of all beliefs conscious of the need to eliminate the violence of the world." (Canon EOS 450D with Sigma 17-70mm lens at 17mm. Psudo HDR in Photoshop)
