Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Souillac Reviews
Intérieur sobre mais magnifiques sculptures (dont le prophète Isaïe) de toute beauté. Coupoles assez uniques. more »Sober interior but magnificent sculptures (including the Prophet Isaiah) of all beauty. Pretty unique domes.
Sicuramente il motivo per visitare questa chiesa-abbazia è il timpano sul portone all'interno con splendidi rilievi raffiguranti i profeti. Vale una sosta se siete in zona. more »Definitely the reason to visit this church-Abbey is the eardrum on the door inside with beautiful reliefs of the prophets. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

A portion of the eardrum has been reinstalled in the nave after the destruction of the wars of religion to preserve.

I only see a one star review. You can't review churches like that. This is just a magnificent church from XII century. Beautiful outside with some uniques features (like the round stone roofs), and simple inside, as expected from the period. Worth a visit when you pass nearby.
A good place to stop for a visit & serenity!
Example of architecture of the XI - XII century. The medieval statuary is remarkable: the sculptor was able to show the transparency of the fabric on the statue of Isaiah! Nice to enjoy!
