Eglise Notre-Dame-du-bout-des-ponts

Litterally, the church of Notre Dame at the end of the bridge(s), which pretty much describes where to find it.  (I'm not sure why "bridges" is plural except that the bridge is in two segments which connect the left and right banks with an island in the middle.)  This little church (which is no longer active) dates back to the 15th century.  In the foreground is the levee on the right bank of the Loire.  Later, I will post a photo that shows why the levee exists today.
