Eglise Saint Phalier

CHABRIS
Description

The Saint-Phalier church is a complex building due to alterations made over the centuries and has a 10th-11th century crypt housing a monolithic sarcophagus that would have hosted the body of St. Phalier, otherwise called Farètre, a sixth-century hermit. As in Déols, it is a place of worship and pilgrimage, originating from a tomb. The most famous pilgrim, Louis XI, made largesses at the sanctuary of St. Phalier, and Archbishop Jean Coeur, son of the minister of Charles VII, embellished the building by enhancing the vaults of the choir, the transept (beautiful Romanesque capitals) and the nave. Outside, in the Romanesque walls of the apse and the transept, figurines (Carolingian period?) can be seen: Visitation, Assumption, items of a Zodiac, etc.
