Chapelle Saint-Pierre in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France, dates back to the 15th century.  By the 19th century, it was used to store fishing nets.  Jean Cocteau cut a deal with the fishermen in 1957 and restored the chapel in his own unique fashion.  This link leads to a blog written in French, but the pictures are by far the best I could find.  If we ever renew our vows, I want to do it here!     .....rh

This a stained glass made by the French writer and artist Jean Cocteau. He made it for the church of th little village he chose to live in at the end of his life (Milly la fôret). Now he is buried in its very church under the eyes of his own work. Stained glass is much more tha a simple window because it creates the amosphere of a church. And this one reminds us a great man...as the first stained glass of History reminded people the Holy story.
