St-Pierre de Carennac church : Michelin's recommendations
The finest feature of this 12C Romanesque church is the doorway, on which clear and very structured scenes are depicted. The overall rigidity is disrupted only by Christ in a mandorla (almond-shaped aureole); He is shown in majesty surrounded by the symbols of the four Evangelists. This is considered one of the finest examples of a Romanesque tympanum and rivals those of Moissac, Collonges and Cahors.
