We invite you to discover some of the Romanesque churches of our country Bourbon. But before you start, a little history! The term Romanesque defines an artistic current that runs from the mid-tenth century to the twelfth century. His field of expression is essentially religious. The architectural symbols of Romanesque art are: the semicircular arch, the barrel vault, the capitals that showcase the sculptures and the modest elevations with few openings. Why this multitude of Romanesque churches around Moulins? Everything starts in the tenth century, three assets will make that Romanesque art will develop in Bourbonnais and almost all of our villages will then build their own Romanesque church: -The Bourbonnais is on the way of great pilgrimages: Vézelay, Cluny, The Puy en Velay, Santiago de Compostela. -The presence and support of the Bourbon family. -The strong influence of the Cluny abbey on Souvigny and its surroundings.
