Petit Futé's opinion on SAINT-PIERRE ABBEY

Plate millesim 2022

Built in the 12th-13th century, the largest church in Corrèze is a masterpiece of Limousin Romanesque art. A real stone bible, its remarkable tympanum, dated 1125, teaches the faithful the Universal Judgement, the triumph of Christ of the Apocalypse. André Malraux said of the church of Beaulieu that it "bears one of the most beautiful Romanesque tympanums, the only one where the sculptor has depicted, behind the arms of Christ open to the world, those of the crucifix like a prophetic shadow". Take the time to admire this sculpted decoration whose splendour is reminiscent of that of Sainte-Foy de Conques. At the entrance, a few steps lead down into the nave. The interior presents the three architectural characteristics of a monastic abbey: the triple nave, here in a composite style, the transept, and the choir, here an ambulatory where the faithful practised their devotions without taking their eyes off the relics of Saints Prime and Felician. Stalls and baroque altarpiece from the 15th century. In the north arm of the transept, a chest contains the treasure, the most important piece of which is the "Majesty of Beaulieu", a Virgin and Child (12th century), as well as a 13th-century champlevé enamel shrine.

C'est un édifice vraiment superbe et le tympan du portail est impressionnant de détails.
Le village est lui aussi pittoresque, n'hésitez pas à visiter

Découverte sur le trajet en voiture, sa belle toiture ma tapé dans l’œil!
La curiosité ma poussé a aller voir cette magnifique abbatiale!
Je n'est pas était déçue, de plus une tablette tactile nous explique l'histoire de cet édifice.
J'ai eu un coup de cœur pour son architecture, son histoire et je regrette beaucoup que l'office de tourisme soit fermer pour acheter le livre de son histoire!

Si vous êtes dans les environs allez y vous ne serais pas déçue!
