Description
The church of Neuilly-en-Dun, once dependent on the abbey of Saint-Sulpice in Bourges, is a fine example of rural churches in the 12th century. It is pleasantly situated on the village square and is surrounded by trees. A modest edifice with a simple nave and no transept, the church is nevertheless entirely vaulted, something which reveals the care taken over its construction. The chevet, which is overlooked by a square tower, comprises an apse decorated with arcades and supported by buttress columns ending in elegant capitals whose fineness and quality (birds devouring serpents, masks, foliage etc.) contrast with the simplicity of the rest.
