Tamerville - Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption

Tamerville - Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption
The parish church "Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption" in the center of Tamerville has a remarkable Romanesque tower. The church (and the tower) were erected mid 12th century, but the church got enlarged and altered over the time. The church was dedicated to Saint Mayeul (aka "Mayeul de Cluny", "Majolus of Cluny"). Saint Mayeul, important abbot of Cluny, built Cluny II. There must have been a connection to the Burgundy in the early times.

Many corbels are under the roof of the Romanesque tower and all along the nave. Here is a "beard puller".
