Chapiteau des Elephants.


We have been here before, but without Saint Pierre.

Last time round I let Gilles my brother-in-law and the photographer here have the last word on the elephants. Sorry Gilles, the French could have seen elephants.

There was that Hannibal thing and Claudius also marched with them. The dates are wrong but who remembers dates.

Also, if the Romans could build a fort almost next to the site of this church and crucify Saint Peter who is to say they did not keep a troop of elephants handy? They look like elephants.
