Saint-Georges-des-Agoûts - Saint-Georges
Saint-Georges, the parish church of the village Saint-Georges-des-Agoûts (pop ~250) dates back to the 12th century. It got enlarged by an additional aisle in the 16th century.

The portal may have altered over the time, but the carvings all around the wooden door are 12th century. Here is the left capital. Two large mermaids, holding each other by the ears. Unfortunately the door is directly behind the capital, so that the right side is only visible, when the door is wide open.

Lorenzo Kjell Salmonson has particularly liked this photo
