Tauriac - Saint-Etienne
A "villa Tauriaca" was given to the Bishop of Le Mans already in 585 by some Alderic. At that time probably a chapel existed here. The portal seen today dates to the 12th. century. Modifications were made, when the church got fortified in the 16th century, but meanwhile the portal is pretty much back to the original state.

When I had visited Tauriac in 2011, the roof was in bad condition. So it was nice to see, that renovation was underway in 2013.
