Eglise Saint-Georges – Berry Roman

The church dates from the mid-12th century and was originally dedicated to Saint Januarius until the 14th century. It is now dedicated to Saint Georges. It once belonged to the abbey of Déols.
Built on the banks of the lake near the remains of the feudal castle, the church is small with a tiled roof (except for the small square roof lantern on the crossing) The nave has the unusual feature of a pointed barrel vault roof, which was little common in Berry. The transverse ribs rest on capitals decorated with rinceaux, lions and birds. The nave is connected to the choir with its three almost identical apses by a diaphragm arch and the famous “Berry passages”. The attractive doorway to the west is ornamented with capitals with interlacing and foliage.
