    Description:

    Betharram is a small village about nine miles (15 km) outside of Lourdes. It was on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela. Hubert Charpentier (1565-1650), a priest architect had the idea to open a hospice for the pilgrims. An extant first chapel dedicated to the Virgin was enlarged in order to build the Sanctuary complex, extended by a monastery belonging to the chaplains of Betharram. Charpentier also had a monumental Way of the Cross (Via Crucis) set up above the Sanctuary on the side…

    Description:

    The collegiate church of St Urbain epitomizes the high degree of refinement and sophistication achieved by French Rayonnant architecture during the third quarter of the 13th century. St Urbain was founded by Pope Urban IV in May 1262 on the site of his birthplace. Although attempts have been made to attribute St Urbain to Jean Langlois, mentioned as ‘magister operis’ in a fabric account, it seems more likely that he was a financial official charged with disbursing papal funds. Thus th…

    Description:

    Commissioned by Francis I in 1516, was completed only in 1531. Possibly designed by Guido Mazzoni or Jean Perréal, it shows signs of an attempt to combine the French and Italian traditions in a monumental style. The two naked recumbent figures of the King and Queen, visible through the arcading of the superstructure, were placed beneath representations of the royal couple shown kneeling at prayer on top of the monument. These strikingly realistic figures are attributed to Guillaume Regnault (…

    Description:

    The tomb of Francis I and Claude of France, commissioned by Henry II from Philibert de L'Orme in 1548, reveals a similar spirit but is still more grandiose in design and execution; it gives the impression of being an independent building, a triumphal arch constructed entirely in white marble. Decorative features were by the Orléans sculptor François Carmoy (fl 1536-1550). Carmoy roughed out the effigies and the five praying figures that stand on the top, but all the figures were completed…

    Description:

    [The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica and popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre (Montmartre butte), the highest point in the city.] One of the more exotic variants on the Basilican form is Paul Abadie’s design for the Sacré-Coeur (1875-1919), Paris, which has a Greek-cross plan expressed in a Byzantine Revival style.
