St-Foy Review

The church of St-Foy dates from between 1155 and 1190; its Romanesque facade remains largely intact (the spires were added in the 19th century), as does the 140-foot octagonal tower over the crossing.

Note the Romanesque bas-relief next to the baptistery, originally the lid of a sarcophagus.
