Marcillac - Saint-Vincent

Most of the Romanesque church erected in the 12th century and dedicated to Saint Vincent got lost and got replaced later. Only large parts of the impressive western facade, with the intricate frieze survived.


I had once passed through Marcillac, when I walked the Via Turonensis, one of the many chemins to Santiago de Compostella. Thousands of people had done that over the centuries - and they carved (and drilled!) in graffiti on the outside walls of Saint-Vincent.
