Simullai, a stronghold of the Roman defensive system in the Aeduan country, had, in the Middle Ages, its lands subjugated to the Counts of Nevers. There is no documentary evidence that a monastery was founded there by Hugues de Châtillon, grandson of Robert de Nevers. We can think that this church was built at the end of the 11th century-beginning of the 12th century. It keeps its Romanesque character in the pure Cluniac style with all its bays and its impressive sculpted decoration, spared by history. You will be able to admire capitals combining intriguing faces and plant symbols all summer until September 30th from 9am to 6pm.
