Eglise romane de Canac

Church of Canac

Credit : OT St Geniez-Campagnac

This church is remarkable because it affixes two successive Romanesque periods (11th and 12th centuries) and two local "schools" (Tarn high valley and Lot valley).
Built on the place of a Gallo-Roman site and a former Necropolis, this church was placed through the patronage of Saint Cyr and Sainte Juliette, his mother, who were tortured around 303.
The church was enlarged by chapels during the 14th and 15th centuries, and redesigned in the highest parts during the 19th century. It is a church with apse and apsidal chapels and the one on the South disappeared.
