The "Cluny"-styled Paray-le-Monial basilica provides a truly remarkable living example of Burgundy's Romanesque architecture. It is considered as a precise reduced-scale model of the celebrated Abbey Cluny. The extreme harmony of its proportions and its pure elegance are especially visible in the layering of its chevet. Also to be admired in this masterpiece is the sheer beauty of the recently-renovated northern entrance, with its ornate decorations inspired from Islamic art. An overwhelming testimony to the genius of the Cluny-style architectural period, this basilica resounds with the fervour of the pilgrimages it hosts from the world over. The complete restoration of the basilica interior has created a space with a breathtaking quality of light. Guided visit for individuals on July and August at 10 and 3 hours.
