Inside the church Saint-Calixte - Saint-Evrard of Cysoing
France

The old parish church was included in the abbey of Saint-Calixte (the body of Pope Saint Callixte arrived from Italy in 854, but the relics leave in Reims in 887, because of the risk incurred by the Norman invasions).

In 1705, to end big problems occurred between the abbey and the lords of Cysoing, a new church, dedicated to Saint Calixte and Saint Evrard, is high outside the monastery. The present church was completed in 1709.
This is a fine example of classic style (single nave lined with Ionic pilasters and vaulted domes). It is enlarged in 1827 and remodeled in 1876/80.

The shot was taken in february 2014, in the beginning of the afternoon. 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.
