Church of St Eutrope

Interesting
Originally composed of a single nave and two superimposed choirs (so that pilgrims on the Way of Saint James could be welcomed while monastic services continued), the church was altered in 1803, but the transept and old Romanesque choir with magnificent historiated capitals remain. Note the imposing monolithic baptismal font in the apsidiol of the southern transept. The crypt, half-buried and entirely vaulted with groins, echoes the lay-out of the upper church.
