Saint-Sulpice Church - Oyré

  • Église Saint-Sulpice
  • This is one of the most outstanding small Romanesque churches in La Vienne . Built in the primitive Romanesque style of the 11th/12th century, it has a gallery opening to the outside, which wraps around its facade and a part of the southern side of the columns connected by a continuous arcade and a porch. Inside the church, the sculptures on the chapels represent archaic and naïve characters including: plants, animals and people though it is difficult to categorize these strange scenes. There is also a polychrome gilded wooden statue of the bishop of Bourges, Saint-Sulpice dating from the 18th century. Nearby : la Groie Forest, Etni'cité at Saint Rémy sur Creuse.
