Thaon - Saint-Pierre

Thaon - Saint-Pierre
Saint-Pierre is a Romanesque church in the middle of the countryside.
The tower was erected late 11th century. The church was once built in the basilica style, but the side aisles were destroyed in the early 18th century. Under the roof of Saint-Pierre is a long row of interesting corbels.

The medieval artist, who carved them, was very creative and so here are some unusual corbels. Here is a cyclops, a very rare species!

Awww, what a fun specimen! Cheers for biodiversity!

Visited Saint Magnus in Fuessen this week.
So sad to see the pics how that guy evicted all those cute funny deamons from the Lechrain!
