Ste-Madeleine Church of Tournus

This charming church stands in the centre of the old Roman town. The chevet, surrounded by old buildings, watches over the banks of the Saône. The 12C semicircular portico still remains with its slim columns, decorated with beaded braid, overlapping vertical or rampant garlands and capitals decorated with foliage and birds. Note the Renaissance chapel whose attractive vaulted ceiling is decorated with coffers linked by ribs.
