I'm moving on from Lapalisse and Saint-Léon to a more northerly location: Souvigny. It was only three or four miles from our gîte in Neuvy, outside the big town of Moulins.
Souvigny was one of the places I really wanted to see when we planned the trip to the Bourbonnais area, département de l'Allier. It was founded as a priory attached to the famous abbey at Cluny, to the west in Burgundy.
Here are just a few photos I took there. More to come. These are kind of abstract. I have some more, showing more of the church and the town, that I'll post over the next few days. Construction of the church in Souvigny started in the year 950.
We spent only about an hour walking around the town. Rain threatened, and a few drops fell. Tasha enjoyed the walk, I'm sure. We moved on.
