La carrière

Loin dans la forêt une carrière se cache.

Elle présente plusieurs caractéristiques intéressantes comme le plan gravé sur l’un des murs de l’entrée, une vieille épave de taxi parisien, une turbine et surtout un autel classé monument historique.

30 Most Beautiful Castles in the World - 11/30

Château de Chenonceau is a French castle near the small village of Chenonceaux, France. The castle was built on the sire of an old mill on the River Cher, sometimes in the 11th century. It was designed by the French Renaissance architect Philibert de L'Orme. The castle became the favorite residence of Queen Catherine de Medici (wife of King Henry II) who added series of gardens around the castle. An architectural mixture of late Gothic and early Renaissance, the castle is classified as Monument Historique since 1840 by the French Ministry of Culture. Today the castle and its gardens are open to the public.

“In the northwest of France, near Nantes and Le Mans, there is a Roman Catholic church which added sci-fi gargoyles to its exterior during a restoration in 1993 and 1995. Called the Chapelle de Bathléem, two of its five pinnacles were restored with gargoyles of a Xenomorph, Gizmo, a Gremlin, Grendizer from Mazinger, and the King of the Dead (Ankou) for good measure. Better yet, this church is officially listed among monuments historiques. Damn right it is.

The church was built in the Middle Ages on a site where Druids held Beltane fertility ceremonies. The pinnacles of the church had fallen into disrepair, losing 28 of the chimeras adorning the corners of the chapel’s five pinnacles. They didn’t have a clear record of what was originally carved in those places, so they hired sculptor Jean-Louis Boistel to add new gargoyles based on Christian mythology as well as modern symbols from American film and Japanese animation.”
