Description
Despite undergoing various modifications, the church of Blet, once dependent on the Abbey of Plaimpied, still retains elements from the 12th century such as the capitals decorated with foliage in the nave and the Benedictine chevet. The roof of the choir is a barrel vault with transverse ribs, while the crossing of the transept is vaulted by an octagonal dome on squinches. Most of the sculpted decoration is on the capitals of the crossing. Some bear animal heads on the corners and are adorned with elongated monsters or interlacing birds, while others depict scenes from the life of Christ.
