La Sainte Baume

La Saint Baume of St. Mary Magdalen is a shrine in France which I have longed to see but never quite made it down there. How delighted I am to see that Christine has a post with pictures of the the ancient place of pilgrimage, frequented by popes, saints and kings. It is yet another sacred spot alluded to in my upcoming medieval novel.

As Christine writes: "The Chemin des Roys: an hour-long journey up this "path of kings" ends at the Grotto. Eighteen kings made pilgrimages to the Holy Grotto via this path, some in penance on their knees." Share
