Saint-Just Basilica

Interesting
This Romanesque basilica (11-12C) located in a remote field and surrounded by a cemetery planted with cypresses, and with the remains of a cloister extending on the other side, has an almost Tuscan feel. Its most original element is the chevet in ''hollow relief'' with carved triangular niches framing a central recess, a rare example of Romanesque architecture in which the builder gave free rein to his imagination. On the inside, near the entrance, note the 4C tombstone, vestige of a large necropolis that once extended over this area.
