Near Avioth, at the beginning of the 12th C, shepherds discovered another sta¬tue of the Virgin and Child.

Dating from the 13th to 16th Cs, its graceful architecture makes it an impressive and exhilarating Gothic masterpiece. The exquisite stone lacework of the adjacent Recevresse, built to receive dona-tions from the pilgrims, is unashamedly Flamboyant Gothic. read more
