A detailed description of the features of this remarkable early church perched on the top of a volcanic plug 85 metres (279 ft) high. The chapel is reached by 268 steps carved into the rock. It was built to celebrate the return from the pilgrimage of Saint James.

Saint-Michel d'Aiguille (also spelled Aiguilhe) (St. Michael of the Needle) is a church in Aiguilhe, near Le Puy-en-Velay. It was built in 969.  In 1429, the mother of Joan of Arc, Isabelle Romée, is said to have come to the site to pray.

A very good clean example, internally almost as new. From the library of Jean Lafauriewith a signed dedication to him by the author.
