Romanesque-Gothic Church of Our Lady, St Mere Eglise, Normandy. To visit this church is a worthwhile visit but to come here on D-Day is truly amazing! French, American and Brits wander through dressed in WWII soldier clothing, streets bathed in flags of the 3 countries. In the courtyard stands a Roman 'milestone' which marked the mileage to Rome. This village was also involved in "Hundred years War" between Kings of France and Mary Queen of Scots family. ©photo by jadoretotravel

This stained glass window is found in the St John the Baptist church in Buckland north of Hobart Tasmania. The window was brought from England to be placed in the new church by Reverend Cox the Rector. It is a mystery as this window is rumoured to be from "Battle Abbey" Battle, near Hastings built by William the Conqueror in 1068 after winning the famous "Battle of Hastings" The alter was built over the site where Harold died by the arrow. Well worth the visit!  photo by jadoretotravel

okay so this isnt a 'stained glass' per sa...I saw this in Venice and if you look inside, its made of "Murano glass" of different colours. I cant help but imagine the colours that would be reflected onto the floor...simply stunning.  photo by jadoretotravel

Popes Palace Avignon france  Between1252 - 1377 AD, due to violent unrest in Rome, the Popes lived in Avignon and extended the Bishops Palace to a magnificent Pope's Palace. During the time spent in Provence, France, 6 Papal conclaves (elections) but by 1377 it was safe to return to Rome and the tomb of St Peter! ©photo by jadoretotravel
