St. Joan of Arc, Domrémy-la-Pucelle

On the way to Luxembourg yesterday, we got off the autoroute for a while, enjoyed a spirited drive through bucolic French countryside, and visited the birthplace of St. Joan of Arc in Domrémy-la-Pucelle. Owing in part to the inclement weather and bad traffic we encountered earlier along the route, we arrived fifteen minutes too late to visit her childhood home. However, we could walk up to the gate and take pictures, and the church next door — Église St. Rémy, where she was baptized and received her First Communion — was open to the public. I tried to get both structures in one photo, but because of the trees this was the best I could do:

If you look closely, you’ll see the cross from the top of the the church in a small clearing in the branches in the top-right quadrant of the photo.
