Let’s tell you a little something about these Romanesque churches…
Romanesque art originated in the 10th century and was then the chosen style until the beginning of the 13th century, when it was replaced by the Gothic style.
Most of the buildings in the Bresse region are made from brick.
Wherever possible, stone was the preferred material for constructions. This was the case for the use of white limestone throughout the Bugey and Revermont regions.
All the angles, door frames, all or a part of the facades and the buttresses were made from cut white stone.
