Save the Church of St. Martin de Dauzats
Save the church of St. Martin de Dauzats as part of the patrimoine, the cultural and spiritual heritage of southwestern France. We appeal to the leadership of Lautrec, a village with an official designation as one of the most beautiful in France, to respect its historic monuments and preserve this church as a public space. The world is watching.
Why is this important?
We live next door to this charming 150-year-old church in southwestern France and don't wish to see it lost forever as a piece of French "patrimoine"--the cultural and spiritual heritage of the south Tarn. Deconsecrated now, it could serve as a salle des expositions--exhibition space--or meeting hall. The Town Hall government is currently intending to see it off for transformation into a private home.
