Geocache Description:





Eglise de Saint Germain




FR : Eglise de Saint Germain
L’église de Saint- Germain date des XVIème et XVIIème siècles. La tour qui précédait l’entrée, s’effondra en 1936, provoquant la destruction des voûtes de la nef.
Elle fut restaurée sur un plan réduit. On accède à l’édifice, constitué des deux travées du Chœur et de l’Abside par un porche d’entrée, suivi d’une cour intérieure.
Cette église conserve un certain nombre de chefs d’œuvres de la statuaire champenoise du XVIème siècle ainsi que de beaux exemples de vitraux de cette même époque.
C’est un bel exemple de restauration pour sauver l’essentiel d’un édifice à demi ruiné tout en respectant son esthétique architecturale.

GB : Saint Germain church
The Saint Germain church dates from XVI° and XVII° centuries.
The collapse of the tower in 1936 destroyed also the nave vaults.
It has been simply restored. We get into the building by a hall follows by an indoor courtyard.
This church kept some master pieces from the XVI° “champenoise” statuary and some good examples of stain glassed windows from the same period.
This is a good renovation example to save the main part of a half destroyed building while keeping its architectural design and its original shape.
