Description de la photo
Titre: Saint Michel de Anesca Chapel
Prise de:

Im the Nesque Canyon, south-west of Monieux.


The St. Michel de Anesca (Nesque) chapel is set under a vast rocky overhang alongside the river of the Nesque Canyon.

The building itself is modest, but its situation, its age (12th century) and its history make it interesting. The chapel consists of a short oblong nave and a vaulted semi-circular apse. On the walls can be seen traces of specifically romanesque decoarative engravings and paintings.

The inscription caved above the arched door shows that the chapel was restored in 1643.

Above this building are two more rock shelters linked by a man-made shaft that were inhabited in prehistoric times.
