Rocher Saint-Michel d’Aiguilhe

Perhaps one of the most remarkable sights in #France, a chapel perched on a volcanic plug. This is the Rock of #Aiguilhe, on the edge of the town of Puy en Velay, in the Auvergne. The Chapelle Saint-Michel has stood there for 1042 years, since Bishop Gothescalk had it built in 962 on his return from a pilgrimage to Santiago del Compostella in Galicia. In 1955 workers found relics under the alter that had been there since it was built.
