Photographer's Note

The Basilica of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine started life as a Benedictine Abbey. The building was started in 1104 to accommodate the large numbers of pilgrims visiting to see relics held there.
It wasn't happy for the abbot though. He imposed taxes that were too heavy on the local peasants to pay for construction so they rose up and killed him.

Best in the large view.
