Notre Dame d'Aubune



To the west of the picturesque village of Beaumes de Venise lies Notre-Dame d'Aubune, a small Roman chapel dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. A number of hiking tracks start from there, heading for the hills. I think of the thousands of pilgrims who throughout the ages have discovered its beautiful lines through the trees. Can you imagine the joy of having access to such beauty almost in my backyard?
 
A flanc de colline à l'ouest du village de Beaumes de Venise se dresse la petite chapelle de  Notre Dame d'Aubune. Datant des XIe et XIIe siècles, c'est un des plus beaux exemples de l'art roman provençal inspiré de l'antique. De là, tout un réseau de chemins de randonnée s'égaillent dans la colline. Je pense aux milliers de pèlerins qui à travers les âges ont découvert cette silhouette à travers les arbres et j'en suis émue.Pouvez-vous imaginer la joie d'avoir une telle merveille presque sous ses fenêtres ?

You are a lucky woman. The move seems to be good for you in many ways. But, hey, I can look at the Arch from my office window.

You have a great new location and are to be envied. I'm glad things are going so well for you.

Savourer et partager par les images comme tu le fais.

I was going to ask whether this is the tower you can see from the rond-point with the hands. It seems it must be? I'll take a detour next time.

I love to look up on the hill and see the chapel up on the hill on the left as we drive from Sablet to Carpentras. Sadly, we have never parked the car and hiked up to see the chapel up close. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

D'une grande pureté s'élevant dans ce coin de nature.
Je me souviens d'avoir parcouru au moins un ou deux de ces chemins. Jadis.

Auibune : origine de ce mot ? Eau Bonne ? Y a-t-il une source à proximité ?

mirae said...

ah beau comme un petit miracle servait comme plat de la journée.

alors..
un flambeau Jeannette Isabelle
un flambeau courons à la chapelle

(en faisant référence à le chant de Noel provencal du dix septième siècle..mais j'ai ajouté le mot chapelle)
bises

oui art is anal me manque.

Nathalie Beaumes said...

Tilia, Mirae - j'ai retiré le billet "art is anal" car il attirait de trop nombreux SPAM. Je n'y avais pas pensé en publiant ce billet mais ce mot a attiré des visiteurs que je ne souhaitais pas voir ici. Auto-censure si on veut, mais obligée.

Sandy K. said...

Beautiful - I don't always post a response, but I travel this country with you:). Thank you!

Et oui parceque chère Nathalie,comme je te racontais il y a les célébrations de Noel dans l'édifice ancien du législature ici dans les petites collines roulantes ou il y une centaine d'arbre de Noel.l'édifice ancien est fait du marbre et bien décoré et c'est tellement enchantant chaque soir ils présentent un nouveau choeur d'une variété de langue- un soir par exemple ukrainian, an autre allemagne et oui un choeur en francais.
Le choeur hier soir, notre choeur de l'université de l'alberta a chanté un flambeau Jeanette Isabella.ils ont donné un cd gratuit.
J'ai fait un petit google pour voir exactement l'origine du chant de Noel et j'ai vu que c'était de la belle provence.ah la provence de Nathalie.
alors Nathalie, on devrait chanter ce chant beaucoup a travers la provence vers le temps de Noel et aussi dans cette chapelle?la vieille de Noel bien sur?!
Est-ce que il y a encore les célébrations de la messe dans cette chapelle?

belle journée Nathalie en la belle lumière de la saison de Edmonton Alberta Canada.je t'embrasse. merci♥
