Saint Martial de Luzençon Chapel

Typical of the romanic architecture, this castrale chapel was built between the 11th and 12th centuries. It was then opened to all, for weddings or burrials. The chevet, facing the East is a symbol of the resurrection of Christ. The chapel is usually closed, but you may ask for the key at the city hall in Saint-Georges de Luzençon (tel 05 65 58 41 00).
