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.

Next to the entrance door is this interisting combination. The tongue-protruder wears dread locks and has bulging eyes! This rough, but pretty unique style can only be found inside Saint-Trojan.
