http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8398/8643890367_15e1c1f0a9_b.jpgAccording to an ancient legend, the name of this remote village in the heart of the marais originates from the story of Dame Létiticie, a noble woman from Saint-Sauveur, who, having gotten lost in the forest during a hunting party believed she would die of thirst.  After invoking the protection of the Virgin, she saw a spring gush forth and then vowed to build a sanctuary on the place, which has since been called Selsoif.  http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8245/8644985516_08f74b173d_b.jpgThe church dates as far back as the 11th century.  The interior is decorated with sculptures of the Virgin and Child and Sainte-Catherine both dating from the 14th century and wood statues of Saint-Sebastian and Saint-Claude from the 16th century.http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8125/8643890355_91cb415df0_b.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8405/8644985754_1da9b57947_b.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8119/8644985848_b02df9be55_b.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8531/8644986038_51b4231aa3_b.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8252/8643890945_cd803668ce_b.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8258/8643891053_e361b55471_b.jpg
