The broken chapel near La Crueize
Languedoc-Roussillon

A few hundred meters from the small farm and the holiday home of La Crueize there is the chapel of St. Laurent. It originates from the 13th century and was built by the monks which founded the hamlet of La Crueize. It probably broke the first time soon after coal mining started inside the hill below in the 19th century.

It was mended several times but finally it was destroyed beyond repair because the hill below was lowered by 11 meters (19 meters due to other sources) because of the mining activity.
