Default To ikeharel: Part of the spire is missing.

The spire is partly missing from a cannonball shot by the Anglo-Dutch navy in 1694 during the famous battle won by the French thanks to Vauban's expertisePerhaps,it's in memory of that victory that the Art Academy has decided not to replace the missing part of the church tower.
Thanks for passing by.
