Colombiers - Notre Dame

Colombiers - Notre Dame
A fortified settlement in Colombiers is known since Carolingian times and a church, dedicated to The Virgin Mary existed already around 1000.

The parish church Notre Dame may be some centuries younger, but still has a Romanesque structure. The church has obviously undergone more than one construction- and and renovation-phases. Other than Saint-Martin in nearby Doussay (see previous uploads) it is in a perfect condition.

The facade, seen here, is the oldest part of the church, dating back to the 12th. century. The facade has some remarkable details.
