Oloron-Sainte-Marie - Saint-Croix

Oloron-Sainte-Marie - Saint-Croix
The portal of "Saint-Croix", a church that is even older than the former cathedral "Sainte-Marie". From 1080 on the Viscounts of Béarn had erected a strong fortification around a castle and the church "Saint-Croix". Upto 1858 two seperate towns existed on both sides of the "Gave d’Oloron". Since then both parts form "Oloron-Sainte-Marie". The church has wonderful Romanesque capitals, but unfortunately I did not find the light switch..
