  • While I'm not fond of the new gray-toned stained glass, everything else about this building and surrounding town is delightful. Tours available from priests with vibrant personalities, clearly keen on sharing and preserving the history. Can sense the significance of this place of pilgrimage, and how impressive a town to arrive to especially for those who hike the journey.
  • Pierre Soulages, who passed away in 2022, created windows in the Abbaye Sainte-Foy de Conques. I loved my visit and would recommend visiting Conques.
