Eglise de St. Pierre


This is St. Peter's Church in Avon, just outside Fontainebleau, an hour south of Paris.

Christine, Queen of Sweden, had the Marquis de Monaldeschi murdered for "betrayal" in 1657 in Avon. There is a tombstone for him here.

According to Viamichelin, the bell tower is from the 13th century, and its Gothic chancel was built in 1555.
