D’Orgue à Bellelay

The organ loft in the church at Bellelay Abbey : Belleley, CH

The trip home from Basel, CH, was taken on the back roads of French-speaking Switzerland. The town of Bellelay features an abbey, which now serves as a psychiatric clinic. The building includes a beautiful Baroque chapel, which is where this organ is at. I believe it's made from blue marble. Either way, it was gorgeous!

It looks very pretty, but what an idea to turn an abbey into a psychiatric clinic?
