Photographer's Note

On the site les eglises romanes du Beaujolais
"The Romance churches beaujolaises, often mountain, are built on an identical level. A semicircular apse, arched in half dome gives on a chorus covered of a cupola on horns; on the nave, seldom arched, an apparent frame. The bell-tower square, squat, which points out the clunisien type, rises on the cupola of the chorus. The apse and the absidioles were then covered with stones punts, the roofing stones, which are nowadays replaced by tiles "channel" or "Romans". The vaults preserved the essential parts of the church, apse and chorus, of a fire always to be feared in these disturbed times. As often, these churches were only priories, intended for some monks, for a sparsity of the population; they in general offer restricted dimensions. The church renovated in the medium of XIXe preserved the ch?ur old church as well as the Romance bell-tower of XIVe or XVe century." Photo A right summer improved to remove electric boxes and to revive the colors a little.
