St-Pierre de Carennac church : Michelin's recommendations

This Romanesque church's 12C portal is one of its most beautiful jewels. Here, the tympanum is a clear and hierarchic production. Christ in his mandiola is the only item which disturbs the rigidness of this picture. Christ appears in all his majesty surrounded by four evangelists illustrated under their symbolic forms. It is considered one of the most beautiful examples of Romanesque tympanums and very well competes with those of Moissac, Collonges and Cahors.
