Chapelle du Trinité, Boussagues
Ruins of the Chapel of the Trinity at Boussagues
Only the shell now remains of the 13th century Chapelle du Trinité. It would have been an imposing building situated above the village of Boussagues but it was never completed. It was being built because Boussagues had a population of 3000, believe it or not, and it needed another Church. The Black Death came and wiped most of them out and it was not needed.. Nowadays, the modern cemetary is situated in the grounds of the ruined chapel. (Canon EOS450D, Sigma 17-70mm @ 17mm, 1/160s @ f/8.0)
