Photographer's Note

A caquetoire (sometimes a caquetoir) is a covered space, often in the form of a canopy, located in front of the entrance of many churches, notably in the center of France (Orlanais: Gtinais and Sologne, Berry, Bourbonnais) , fastened to one side of the nave. It takes its name from the verb caquer ("chattering through") because parishioners could shelter there after the offices to exchange news.
