Saint-Cyr and Sainte-Julitte Church, French Heritage monument to Escurolles

Romanesque church with a nave and two aisles vaulted quarter-circle, having replaced a primitive Church, mentioned in documents from the 10th century and which depended on Cluny. The primitive edifice should be limited to the first three spans, continued in the 12th century by two others, including a forming transept and three apses. The pillars of the two spans around the choir are quartered of engaged columns which bases are equipped with claws. The decoration of the capitals includes characters, warriors mixed with flora and fantastic fauna (vultures drinking from a chalice...). The porch and the belfry, which threatened ruin, were demolished at the beginning of the 20th century.
