Basilique Notre-Dame-du-Port

Highly recommended
This basilica is the most famous of the Romanesque churches of Lower Auvergne. Its assorted decoration contributes to the overall sense of harmony. Inside, the richly decorated chancel is surrounded by an ambulatory opening onto four radiant chapels. Subtle lighting brings out the details of the capitals, many featuring comical expressions. Under the chancel, the "Souterraine" contains a little Black Madonna, which attracts crowds of visitors every year.
