Long Description:

Pont de Ruan

Fr: L'église de Pont-de-Ruan (Indre et Loire) est construite à partir du XIe siècle. A l'Intérieur de l'église la nef date du XIe siècle et le choeur du XIIe siècle. La nef est couverte d'une voûte en bois tandis que le choeur est couvert de voûtes d'ogives en pierre.
Honoré de Balzac cita l'église de la Sainte Trinité dans son roman de 1836 « le Lys dans la Vallée : « Voilà le village du Pont-de-Ruan, joli village surmonté d'une vieille église pleine de caractère, une église du temps des croisades, et comme les peintres en cherchent pour leurs tableaux".
Le clocher-pignon date de 1860.
Dans ce pignon on apperçoit 16 trous d'un pigeonnier se situant au dessus du coeur.
Le pigeonnier est original par sa situation. Il semble deserté par ses volatiles; pas un pigeon!


En: The church of Pont-de-Ruan (Indre et Loire) is built from the eleventh century. Inside the church the nave dates from the eleventh century and the choir of the twelfth century. The nave is covered with a wooden vault while the choir is covered with stone vaults.
  Honoré de Balzac cited the church of the Holy Trinity in his novel of 1836 "The Lily in the Valley: "Here is the village of Pont-de-Ruan, a pretty village surmounted by an old church full of character, a church from the time of the Crusades, and as painters seek for their paintings".
The bell tower dates from 1860.
In this pinion we see 16 holes of a dovecote located above the heart.
The dovecote is original in its situation. He seems deserted by his birds; not a pigeon!
