Sainte-Marie Abbey Church

Interesting
Built on the site of the old Church of St Martin, St Mary's abbey (12C) is a church of vast proportions. Similar to the Byzantine style of churches in Périgueux and Cahors, it features an extremely original chancel with five pentagonal apses. Inside, note the portal, together with the Romanesque bas-relief of the prophet Isaiah whose expression is quite striking.
