Avant-corps (protruding front ©)

The translation in the title is followed by this sign ©; this means that it has been "invented" by me.

An avant-corps is the protruding part of the façade (facade) of a church.
The protruding part around the door of the Saint-Valérien in Tournus is the avant-corps.

Saint-Valérien - Tournus
