Rully - Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Rieul

Rully -  Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Rieul
The parish in Rully may be on of the oldest around, as Saint-Rieul ("Rully" derives from "Rieul" was the very first bishop of nearby Senlis end of the fourth century. Legends tell, that Saint Rieul preached here as a missionary in front of a crowd of heathens and miraculously tranquilized frogs, remembered as "le miracle des grenouilles".

The parish church was erected from the early 12 century on. The oldest existing part is the tower. These weathered heads are on one of the tower´s corner.
