  • Sober interior but magnificent sculptures (including the Prophet Isaiah) of all beauty. Pretty unique domes.

  • 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.

  • One of the few French churches of style Byzantine romano (with cupolas). A portion of the eardrum has been reinstalled in the nave after the destruction of the wars of religion to preserve. The eardrum is a masterpiece of sculpture to the school of Moissac, the Prophet Isaiah, a reference in the field

  • 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!
