Oradour-sur-Glane Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 2 photos
A 13km drive took us to the medieval town of St. Junien. The town is named after its Patron Saint [6th century religious hermit, named Julien]
The hermit was said to cure the faithful with holy spring water.
The 11th century Romanesque monastery of St-Junien was built around his tomb and is worth a visit for its sculptures and frescoes.
In the town we saw many fountains with unusual sculpture's of a Dragonfly. I believe, the Dragon fly is related to water, so I guess it maybe to do with the holy spring water.
