Church Saint-Martin of Rongy
France

As was the case elsewhere in the country, the War of 1914-1918 destroyed numerous buildings. The church of Rongy was destroyed at the end of the war, on 20 October 1918. Fortunately, the greater part of the furniture was saved by the parish priest of the time, especially the principal altar of oak, dating from 1703 and measuring 13 metres long. People were able to replace it in the church whose reconstruction was completed in 1928. At the entrance to the building one also discovers a funeral monument to the memory of François de Roisin, one of Napoleon’s officers, dead in 1812 during the Russian campaign.

The shot was taken in may 2012, in the beginning of the evening. Panorama made in HDR version (enfuse).

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
