France 2015
Église Saint-Martial de Lestards

The church of Saint-Martial Lestards is located on the edge of Corrèze Millevaches. This church, built in the late twelfth - the early thirteenth century, is covered with a thatched roof that makes it unique in France. Its history is linked to that of St. Anthony, famous Egyptian hermit born about 251, whose relics were kept there until 1616. It is classified as historical monuments since April 9, 2002.
