Petit Futé's opinion on L' EGLISE SAINT-MICHEL-DES-LIONS

Vintage plate 2020

Hemmed in the district of La Motte, this elegant Gothic building dominates the city of its 65 metres. It was built from 1364 onwards. Its octagonal steeple/porch is topped with a antifoudre boule boule ball, a real emblem of the regional capital before the Benedictine station is built. She replaced another wooden sphere of 600 kg installed in 1914 and removed two years later by the Germans. On each side of the south portal, two (very eroded) granite lions gave their names to the church and raised their guard: they come from Gallo-Roman funeral monuments and served in the Middle Ages to delimit the courts of the Vicomté and the St. Martial Abbey. A «hall» plan and the inclined pillars of the th century stained glass windows on the life of Saint-Jean-Baptiste and the life of the Virgin, and the socket containing the relics of Saint Martial, preserved here since the demolition of the Basilica.

Edifice religieux remarquable et bien entretenu. De superbes vitraux qui mérite de s'arrêter, et les colonnes penchées donne à cette église un charme opérant.
