Search Saint Pierre es Leins de Gluges:

The village of Gluges huddles at the foot of high cliffs which overlook the right bank of the Dordogne. It is about 5 Km from the town of Martel.
The church of St Pierre es Liens is thought to have been founded in the Eleventh century by Gailhard de Mirandol to house treasures brought back from the Crusades. The inside of the church is mostly ruined and cannot be visited.
A replacement church was built about 200 years ago approx 500 m along the road. The singer Edith Piaf donated the money to replace the church windows insisting that the gift was kept secret until after her death in 1963.
The churchyard is arranged in stepped terraces up to the foot of the cliffs.
