  • Delightful old church. Hidden gem with interesting facade and painting on the columns. Situated at one corner of the main square you can't miss it

  • This church is certainly worth a visit. It’s nicely situated in the center of Civray, with easy access to all that the small town has to offer. The frescos are beautiful and well,preserved.

  • A beautiful Romanesque church with a lovely facade - very ornate. Inside the stonework is magnificent as are the frescoes and murals which have been beautifully restored. The church ceiling is also very unusual and unlike any I've seen before in France. A real surprise in the small town and certainly well worth paying a visit.
  • Von aussen her eine äußerst interessante romanische Kirche mit sehr vielen Motiven. Genau über dem Portal sieht man Ritter mit einem Tatzenkreuz im Schild, was ein Bezug zu den Tempelrittern sein könnte (offiziell gibt es aber keinen). Innen wurde die Kirche im 19. Jahrhundert aufwendig renoviert, aber dadurch auch stark übermalt und so ist vom historischen Gemäuer kaum mehr was sichtbar. Ein original Fresko ist noch erhalten. Dennoch unbedingt sehenswert, den der Detailreichtum an der Außenmauer ist selten.
