Saint-Sauveur church

ROCHECHOUART

Description

In the 9th century, a priory was built by order of the Abbey of Charroux on the site of the current church. Consecrated in either 1060 or 1067 the Saint Sauveur church is a remarkable example of 11th century Romanesque art, in all its simplicity and its austerity. Take a look at the twisted spire which dates from the end of the 18th century (1767-1774) and which is relatively rare in Europe, with various legends explaining why the spire is twisted. Note also the frescoes in the interior, one dating from the 15th century and the other created by Greschny in 1969. The church also has a museum of sacred art housed in the tribune.
