Romanesque churches in Burgundy?

I have been trying to see as many Romanesque churches as possible whereever I visit.

In Burgundy, so far my list is:

Tournus: St-Philibert,
Autun: St-Lazare,
Avallon: St-Lazare,
Saulieu: St-Andoche,
Vezelay: Ste-Madeleine,
Semur-en-Brionnais: st-Hilaire

Could anyone suggest others?

Thanks

Fontenay, la Charite s Loire, Charlieu, Cluny, bits of Paray le Monial though a lot's restored

Also Chapaize and Anzy le Duc.

I suggest Taizé. The church is, as all Romanesque churches, modest. But the small graveyard has the grave of Frère Roger, and the famous camp where Christians from all over the world and of all denominations meet, is a few hundred meters away. Besides, Cluny is very close.

There's very little left of Cluny, unfortunately.

Many thanks for the replies, knew I could count on Fodorites for prompt answers.

Now, just have to figure out how to get to these places by public transport next week.

I visited Abbaye de Fontenay today, in a gray, drizzling Autumn morning, except a lone gardener, no one else around the expansive abbey ground.

The church is Romanesque style at its most beauty of simplicity and harmony, the silence and serene are most moving.

I took train from Dijon to Montbard, then a short taxi ride.

I don't know if 11th century or so is Romanesque, but have you considered Branciome, near Taize?

To Tomboy, Thanks for the suggestion, I haven't plan to go down south this trip, perhaps next year.
