Rétaud - Saint-Trojan

Rétaud - Saint-Trojan
Only about 6kms north of the wonderful Romanesque church in Rioux (see previuos uploads) is Saint-Trojan in the center of Rétaud. Both churches seem to be closely related in many ways. They shared a very similar floorplan, when they were erected end of the 12th century. It looks like only one workshop worked in both villages.

Just like in Rioux there is not much known, about the history of the building, that as well may have served as a priory church.

Facing east to the choir of the single nave church. The nave is pretty dark. The walls seem to have a problem with moisture.
