Abbatiale romane

Rich in symbols and enigmas.The church in Bénévent-l'Abbaye is a necessary stop for all lovers of Romanesque art and esoteric codes: Modillions of grimacing heads, monstrous animals and figures, foliage, griffons, palmettes…The symbols of the sculpted 38 capitals and 145 modillions were deciphered and the secrets are revealed to the visitor.A stage on the Compostelle Pilgrimage Route, Bénévent church is typical of Limousin Romanesque art.Even for the non-initiated, it's worth a visit if just for its exterior appearance and the two bell towers while not forgetting the interior or its surroundings: the colourful, market town of Bénévent.A unique 19th and 20th century organ.
