The Oak Chapel of Allouville-Bellefosse

In the French village of Allouville-Bellefosse, an oak tree stands. No one knows for sure how old the tree is, but it is considered the oldest tree in France -botanists estimate 800 years. A fire hollowed out the tree in the late 1600s, yet it survived and sprouted leaves afterward. The people of  Allouville-Bellefosse considered it a miracle and built a chapel and a staircase inside!
