Saint-Gordien ChurchAt the bottom of the village, the 12th Century church of Saint-Gordien, restored in the 19th Century, has retained its simple Romanesque floor-plan: a single nave ending in a semi-circular apse. The nave has a semi-circular ceiling, known as a barrel vault. As is frequently the case with Romanesque vaults from the 12th Century on, the weight of the roof is supported by pilasters and transverse ribs.The small, carefully carved tympanum, from the end of the 12th or beginning of the 13th Century, is well worth a close look. The fact that it is associated with a fragment of a pagan funeral stone, carved into the shape of a keystone, makes it particularly interesting. Christ is surrounded by an almond-shaped mandorla halo, and is giving a blessing with his right hand. The book of Life open in his other hand shows the words “I am the light of the world.” The traditional Tetramorph is also shown. The sculptor has used the effects of the folds of Christ’s clothing to give an impression of volume.Inside the church there is a fine Romanesque marble font, decorated simply with horse-shoe arches and human heads.
