  • Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste

This exquisite Romanesque church with its magnificent chancel and column abutments rises high above the banks of the Vonne River. Bygone craftsmen put all their talents in the decoration and sculptures of this chancel. The great Gothic bay was re-opened in 1994 and a specially commissioned melted glass stained glass window, by Thierry Gilhodez, was set there in 1999. In the yellow upper part of the window, different shades of blue represent 'the purifying aspect of water'. Other windows by master glassblowers Gilhodez, Guevel and Fanjat will soon be set and these too will take up the theme of the baptismal waters. Not to be missed: the Poitevin style dwelling and 15th century houses. Nearby: the Gallo-Roman site at Sanxay and Lusignan, home of the Mélusine Fairy.
