Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Circles and Curves
The Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre in the Province of Quebec, Canada is situated along the St Lawrence River, approximately thirty kms east of Quebec City.
LAND WAS GIVEN TO THE CHURCH IN 1658 FOR A CHAPEL TO BE BUILT IN HONOR OF ST ANNE.
IN 1876, THE FIRST BASILICA WAS BUILT.
IN 1922, THE BASILICA BURNT TO THE GROUND, AND THIS ONE WAS BUILT IN 1926.
HALF A MILLION PILGRIMS VISIT THIS SANCTUARY EACH YEAR. JULY 26 IS THE OFFICIAL FESTIVAL OF ST ANNE.
MIRACLES AND CURING OF THE SICK AND DISABLED HAVE TAKEN PLACE HERE AND HAVE BEEN CREDITED BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
THESE PHOTOS ONLY REPRESENT A TINY PART OF WHAT CAN BE SEEN AT THIS HISTORICAL SITE.
CIRCLES, SEMI CIRCLES, AND LOTS OF CURVES! WHEN YOU LOOK AT EACH PHOTO, YOU CAN SEE A CIRCLE IN SOME FORM, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE THOSE THAT ARE MORE OBVIOUS THAN OTHERS.
THANKS FOR COMING BY TO SEE THE PHOTOS. SEE YOU TOMORROW…..
Gorgeous! I love churches but nonetheless; gorgeous!
Very stunning beautiful photos.:)
Those are fabulous curves! Beautifully done.
I’ve visited here, you have some great photos.
I wish I had taken more photos now. Didn’t know I was going to have blog! Thanks very much…
Churches have the best circles and you showed them off well……Marvelous!
Thank you Cee!
Beautiful! I loved stained glass windows. I went o a class once where we learned how to make them. After weeks of work I produced a 10inch square piece of stained glass that could possibly represent a boat if you turned it sideways & squinted! I now have so much respect or the people who made those windows!!
That is something I have never done. I guess the men that did the church windows were experts.
Thanks for coming by Barbara.
It was really difficult! I love art, but I’m really not very old at it!
Lol, good I mean, not old!
