Eglise Saint Victor

Romanesque building built at the end of the 12th or beginning of the 13th century, characterized by a plan with a single nave enlarged from the 15th to the 17th century by side chapels.
The apse in bottom of oven falls on arcades with capitals. The south portal, which had been concealed by 17th century works, has splayed openings and covings comprising a multi-lobed arch according to a rare model and confined to Velay. The capitals of this portal and those of the choir present sculptures with plant or animal motifs, enhanced by traces of polychromy. Surveys have revealed the presence, in the choir and the chapels, of decorations painted at different times (13th century, 15th century, 17th century)
