Rucqueville - Saint-Pierre
Rucqueville, a tiny village about 10 kms east of Bayeux, was a settlement already in gallo-roman times. Saint Pierre was erected end of the 11th century on older foundations. At that time, the place was owned by the abbey "Sainte Trinité" in Caen (aka "Abbaye aux Dames"). This may explain why such an "expensive" church was built here. Saint Pierre, looking not spectacular from outside, houses some of the nicest and most elaborate capitals I found within the region. Medieval masters have worked here.
