The porch of Saint-Etienne de Barcugnas is a striking example of the ‘archaic’ Romanesque style which lasted here into the 16th Century: the sculptors decided to create a work in the Romanesque spirit of the 12th Century! They therefore built a doorway with recessed voussoir arches supported by slender columns. The subject chosen for the tympanum was the stoning of saint Stephen. The fact that the central figure is the saint and no longer Christ shows that there had been a major change. Since the start of the Gothic Era, saints had become primordial in popular religion. Also worth a visit: in the parish church of Luchon (Notre-Dame-del’Assomption), the remarkable mural paintings in oil and caustic by Romain Cazes, a student and disciple of Ingres.
