St Genès Collegiate Church

This Romanesque church has been heavily altered. Note the interesting multi-coloured decoration on the right transept. On the porch wall overlooking the place du Palais, an elegantly sculpted 13C funereal recess has been inlaid. Inside, the cupola is the biggest in Auvergne and the fresco dates from the 12C.
