Church for Sunday - Saint-Pierre-les-Églises - Chauvigny

On a recent brocante trip down to Chauvigny friends Dennis & Angela took us to visit the interesting little church of  Saint-Pierre-les-Églises on the edge of the town. 

The church sits in a cemetery of Merovingian origin as evidenced by the sarcophagi that are strewn around it.

Inside the main interest lies in its (10th century) pre-Roman apse with a set of frescoes belonging to the Carolingian era. 

Although it does have other points of interest.

It struck me that outside isn't somewhere you would want to stroll through on a dark night.
