France: Haute Maurienne - paulsmit
[FRANCE.ALPSNORTH 10947]
'A quick prayer.’

Life in the Haute Maurienne has been hard and poor. So every bit of help was welcome. Therefore you can still find many road chapels (oratoires) in the region, like this Oratoire Saint Antoine du Bec just outside the hamlet of Vincendières in Vallée d'Avérole. Photo Paul Smit.
