St-Hilaire's Church of Semur-en-Brionnais

Interesting
St-Hilaire's Church, built in the Clunic style, features a beautiful East end and an elegant two-storey octagonal bell tower. The West doorway is richly decorated, but the carvings show a certain technical clumsiness. The nave is very harmonious. Its triforium (gallery), resting on arches with a double band of mouldings, forms a round gallery probably inspired by that of St-Michael's Chapel above the main doorway, in Cluny Abbey Church.
