no, it is not in Italy. It is thought to be out of place where it is, out of character for its location. Consider my first clue.

Hey mudbug, are we all on the same page? The photo in question is of a church interior.

I had to look Lyons up in my funk and wagnells. You have the correct country but wrong corner. Keep guessing!!

think church, not cathedral, and in a BIG town near Chartres. This is in any tour book I have seen, not an obscure church.

Snoop Puss, you are safe for now, it is not Rouen. But if you had traveled from Chartres to Rouen, you would have come pretty close to this church on that journey.

Well Done cara .

I will cut and paste a bit more info on this church.

St-Etienne-du-Mont's interior is 68 meters long and is made up by a five-bay nave with very high sides and lateral chapels. Its remarkable masterpiece is the rood screen, the only one left in Paris, built in 1545, probably by Pierre Beaucorps, which divides also the two main construction periods: the Gothic chancel and the Renaissance nave. Another treasure is a wood pulpit presenting Samson holding a bone in one hand, with a lion at his feet. Beautiful stained glasses can be found in the chapel on the right side of the church.


Not only is its facade different, but its very late Gothic interior has design features not often encountered. There is an (for Paris) unique elaborate rood-screen (an early Catholic device for separating celebrants from congregants during worship). This one is structurally open and gives a complete view of the Altar and Lady Chapel in the apse. Its delicate carving and lateral spiral staircases make the screen a gem. The stonework is amplified by a Flamboyant Gothic vaulting with stalactite pendant keystones and elaborate bosses. The lateral walls as well are innovative with tall wide windows, while a balustrade mimics the design of the screen staircases.

There is an original filigree stone rood screen.


It's your turn cara.........
