‘Villers-la-Ville - Abbey church of Villers Abbey - 3’


These pictures were taken in the same room as my two previous ones: in the church ruins of the abbey.
In my main picture you will find some elements of my previous one.
This time I had two people acting unconsciously for my photo.

Information from https://villers.be/fr/vlog/eglise-abbaye-villers about the abbey church :

The first stones of the church were laid in 1197 on the initiative of Abbot Charles de Seyn.
First in Romanesque style, then Gothic.
The construction of the church lasted 86 years.
The dimensions were commensurate with the religious faith of the Cistercian monks: 94 m long, 42 m wide and 23 m high. Equipped with oculi, also called ‘windows of the soul’, and 8 side chapels, the building testified to the power and aura of the abbey.
Dramatic but in 1794 during the French Revolution when the monks were chased away, the church was sold to a material merchant who dismantled it piece by piece.
