L’Eglise de Saint Michel, Pont L’Eveque

Pont L’Eveque is primarily famous for its cheese which is similar to Camembert and Brie but dates back much further and was allegedly first produced by some Cistercian monks who had settled near Caen. The cheese is made in square blocks rather than the usual round one associates with Camembert and Brie and the best can be found in the Pays D’Auge regions which has Pont L’Eveque at its centre. Naturally we had to test some but it was so good there was none left to photograph!

The town itself is pretty, if unremarkable,but the very large church of Saint Michel boats some particularly beautiful stained glass windows.
