For more than a thousand years, at the crossroads that have become our roads, the Church of St Christopher stands and offers us, in the grace of its harmonious structure resulting from the union of different architectural currents, a place of life where one reads, in stone, glass and bronze, in leather and copper, in brass and wood, concern for transmission, the only sharing that braves time: transmission of a memory, a history, a faith.
You will be invited to discover - or rediscover - this link.
For convenience, the tour group will be split in two but each "half" will be able to visit each place.
Each group will "build" its visit according to its curiosity, in the crypt and the high church, with the help of the guide and, if you wish, that of the QR-Codes indicated on the document that will be given to you (you can later redo or finish the visit quietly).
The QR-Codes are read using your smartphone. You will have at your disposal photos, articles or explanations to complete the visit.
If your smatphone does not scan the flashcodes, you will have to think about downloading an application for free to scan them.
Your guide will be equipped with a tablet.
The main thing is simply to see and perhaps marvel...
