Simplicity in the French countryside

for Lens Artists Photo Challenge #91: simplicity

One of our voyages of exploration in the Haute-Saône led us to an interesting trifecta:  a chapel, a church, and a chalot in Saint-Bresson.  The chapel is what originally caught our attention and caused us to pull over.

The chapel Saint-Brice, neogothic style, dates from the nineteenth century. There was, in Saint-Bresson, a very old chapel dedicated to Saint Brice. During a cholera epidemic, Father Cardot vowed to St. Brice to repair the chapel if cholera did not return. The work was completed in March 1856.
