Convent of the Cordeliers, St-Nizier-sous-Charlieu

Interesting
The monastery of the Cordeliers underwent thorough restoration work. The most interesting features are the capitals in the North gallery, which represent the Vices and the Virtues, in particular the ermine (purity), the porcupine (justice), the dog (fidelity), the owl (wisdom), the dragon (controlled evil), the snake (hypocrisy)... Not to be missed either: the cloister galleries (early 15C) decorated with various plant motifs and the 14C single-nave church, featuring three side chapels.
