Church on Sunday - Oratory of Germigny-des-Pres


"The oratory of Germigny-des-Prés is one of the oldest churches in France (806). 

It houses a mosaic of Byzantine inspiration in a perfect state of conservation. This mosaic is unique in France, for it is the only mosaic of the Carolingian period that is preserved to us. His subject, the Ark of the Covenant, is highly symbolic"           Guided tours available...
