Frescoes in Meillonnas (Ain (01))

With the Chapelle Saint-Esprit, the Chapelle Notre-Dame is the oldest part of L'Église St Oyen, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. The curé Charvet discovered the frescoes in the chapels on 1897, whose style, themes and techniques evoke the Italian Renaissance. The Chapelle Notre-Dame has by far the most well preserved frescoes, photos of which I show below.
