Photographer's Note

The Abbey La Sauve-Majeure in the Gironde (30 km from Bordeaux).
Founded in 1079, this bénédictine abbey became a religious, economic and cultural center.
It was also a stage for the piligrims which went to St Jacques de Compostelle.
Currently there remain only these superb ruins and a part of the cloister. One can admire many carved capitals also there (an example to be seen in WS)
