Description

Sculptures, reliefs and frescos.

Built in the twelfth century, the Notre-Dame-la-Grande facade is most impressive. Embellished with arches, capitals and carved archivolts, its three-level elevation is reminiscent of gabled mansion structures. Close observation of the sculptures and reliefs reveals the input of many artisans.

The darkness of the interior is surprising but permits the polychrome frescoes to reveal all their evocative power.
