Basilica of Saint Andoche, Saulieu




Back to Paradoxplace Burgundy & Champagne Pages



The central Burgundy road north from Autun to Avallon takes one through the hills, woods and pastures of the Morvan National Park.  This is Charolais country, and for meaties the town of Saulieu in the middle has a Charolais Festival on the third weekend in August each year.


Dom P for once was not here for the meat, but for the old (circa 1130) Abbey Church, now the Basilica of Saint Andoche, which has been beautifully restored over the past six years and has more medieval Burgundian narrative and decorative capitals ... this time with modern lighting available.  


These are some of the Capital Animals and Monsters ........







Bear bollocking ?





The "Little Fella" who is to be found peeping out of foliage in many medieval churches if you look hard enough
