Saint-Symphorien church in Morogues Parish church

The church

Quiet, so quiet little village of Morogues… after the visit of the neighbouring castle of Maupas, we stop here for a moment to visit the church.

It was raised in the 13th century by lords of Maupas. This small Romanesque church is beautiful, with its pretty unusual colour, the dark brown ferruginous sandstone of Morogues. Oh, did you notice, here? This little porch roof above the entrance door, and the high tower-bell, pretty massive…

The interior

We can see inside a decoration coming from the Holy-Chapel of Bourges raised for duke Jean de Berry, like the 14th century’s bench made in oak wood!

A bench moved in Morogues in 1757, when the Chapel was destroyed. We also can see some nice statues, like this saint Symphorien (beginning of the 15th c.) in polychrome stone: in fact, we don’t know if it’s a saint or a nobleman from the court of duke de Berry!

And also!
