a church up a tree

A church up a tree. This would usually be followed by 'only in America', but the tree/church hybrid is actually located in France in a small farming village called Allouville-Bellefosse. It's called Chene Chappelle (chapel oak), and the tree is about 800 years old. The chapel was first built in 1696, after the tree was hit by lightening and two monks thought it would make a good sanctuary to the Virgin Mary.  Now I'm not religious in any way, shape or form, but it's one of the many places l would like to visit.

Those crazy French monks etc
