043 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-Pierrepont

My next stop was to the 16th century Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-Pierrepont with its 15th century fortified bell tower. 044 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-Pierrepont045 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-PierrepontThe interior has some fine liturgical furniture including this 18th century baptismal font in the nave. It is perhaps more famous for its "mise au tombeau" created in the 16th century. The figures represented around Christ are Saint John, Mary Magdalen and the Virgin Mary. 048 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-Pierrepont 049 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-PierrepontBehind the figures one can see rocks, bones and even a skull. 052 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-PierrepontThis chapel is also quite interesting for its altar painted in faux marble from the 18th century and a holy water font created from the remains of an old staute. 046 Église de Saint-Nicolas-de-PierrepontSome statuary within the church include that of Saint Catherine, Saint Sebastien, Our Lady of La Salette and Saint Hubert.
