Eglise Saint-Laurent – Berry Roman

Dependent on the chapter of Notre-Dame de Sales in Bourges, the church of Primelles is a fine example of small 12th-century buildings in Berry.
The church has been little modified except for the creation of a Gothic pointed-arch doorway. It comprises a single nave with wood panelling lit by small semi-circular arched windows, and a choir with a vaulted barrel roof. The tall square tower was probably added to the choir later on. The pointed arcades midway up the bell tower are very unusual in the local area and sit just below twin semi-circular arched windows. Romanesque frescos in the nave beneath a window on the south wall were recently cleaned up. The faces depicted in remnants of the story of Adam and Eve bear an extraordinary resemblance to those in Vic.
