Saint-Georges

saint georgesTuesday’s theme at CDP was Saint George’s Day – the national day of England – and when I browsed the pictures everyone had taken, I suddenly remembered this relief on one of the medieval buildings of Nîmes. I quickly went through my archives, and found some pictures (today it’s raining and I don’t much feel like going out…) – it’s a bit late, but anyway.

So here is a French version of Saint-Georges, which you can find at Place de la Belle-Croix in the heart of Nîmes.

  1. Stunning shot and fun that you found the perfect image.

  2. Thanks 🙂 The relief is actually very small, which is hard to tell from this photo!

  3. A beautiful photo for the theme. It is amazing how widespread the legend of St George is.
