Church of St-Michel-des-Lions

Interesting
Two buildings, one Romanesque and the other 13C Gothic, predate the current building whose construction began in 1364 and was pursued in the 15C and 16C. The rectangular plan is a result of its hall-church character. Two granite Lions guard the entrance; they served, so it is said, to mark the territory of the abbots of St Martial from that of the viscounts of Limoges. The saint's relics are kept behind the carved stone altarpiece.
