Why
take advantage (of it)...!

Wooden churches are very unusual. The only ones found in France are in Champagne. The choice of building in wood was due to the time and money restrictions of the period: they were built using the same techniques as those used for farmhouses or market halls, mainly from oak ('der' in Celtic). The fragility of the materials explains why they have been restored and are presented to us today in all their glory.

Thus the region of the great lakes of Der and the Forêt d’Orient is home to a unique grouping of religious buildings: ten churches and a chapel built entirely of wood, between the late 15th and the 18th century.
