Cycle Touring Day 167

I was staying here near Saint-Mathurin-sur-Loire in June and July whilst with wwoof host three, but took the opportunity to explore the L'├ęglise Saint-Mathurin again today with my chum.

The artwork inside is so out of character with a traditional church that it deserves to be explored. The artist is Josep Grau-Garriga and he titled the monumental piece the "Gateway to Peace". Unfortunately he died before the he could complete it, but in his honour, the work has been mounted permanently in the church since the spring of 2012.
