About us

The Saint-André d'Ayzac church, of Romanesque origin, was remodeled in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries. In the shape of a Latin cross, with a single nave and two side chapels, it ends with a semicircular apse. The bell tower is protected by a slate roof with four slopes. The initial gate located to the south and giving onto the old cemetery has been walled up.
Inside, against an apse in exposed stone, stands an admirable late XNUMXth-early XNUMXth century altarpiece. In the center, a crucifixion framed by two statues in the round: Saint John and Mary Magdalene with her long hair stand out against a background of clouds painted on a canvas. On either side of it, sit two large statues: on the right, that of Saint-André, on the left, that of the Virgin Mary holding the Child Jesus in her arms. Each of these statues is framed by two twisted columns with foliage. This altarpiece with the tabernacle is attributed to the CLAVERIE workshop in Lourdes.
The pulpit has a back surmounted by a lambrequin sounding board.
Two chapels complete the ensemble, that of the Virgin, on the left, and that of Saint-Roch, on the right.
