Discover the murals of the Saint-Christophe de Montferrand church. Discovered in 1982 and restored in the 1990s, the murals bear witness to several eras (Romanesque, Gothic) and several styles.
The most spectacular panel represents the sky (sun and moon) in which is inscribed a Christ in mages whose style reminds us of the Middle East. At the bottom another panel presents a theme very worked by the painters who preceded the appearance of perspective in Italy (15th century).
But other fragments date from an earlier period (12th century).
The visit highlights the differences between these two styles.
