Apocalypse de St-Emilion, St-Emilion, France, Sept. 2020

While being on the way from Carnac to Biarritz, we stopped by at a town called Saint Emilion, some 50 km east of Bordeaux. Never heard of it before, the travel guide acknowledged it as a spot for its world famous wines and its medieval architecture. We haven´t been prepared for what to come – to say the least. The church has been tremendous, with its old paintings and frescoes, but walking through the side door into the cloister, we starred at a wall full of paintings of the Apocalypse of the New Testament. We were blown away by the beauty of the paintings, a modern interpretation of the Apocalypse of John – we had no clue at all what would await us around these holy walls. I´m not very much into surprises, but this one made my day. More info about this exhibition can be found here (in french): http://apocalypse-saint-emilion.com . Enjoy!
