Neuvy-Saint-Sépulchre - Saint-Étienne

Neuvy-Saint-Sépulchre - Saint-Étienne
This unique church complex, once part of a collegiate and dedicated to Saint-Jaques, combines a round church and attached to this a rectangular basilica.

A local noble named Eudes of Deols, who had traveled to the Holy Land in 1027, founded this church around 1040, a replica of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem. Over centuries this was a major stop-over for pilgrims following the Via Lemovicensis.

OK, this photo was a try. The stair turret is by far not the main feature of this church.
