about St Amand de Coly
St Amand de Coly in the Dordogne, France is a well-fortified yet austere church originally built in the twelfth century and completed in the thirteenth.
Located in a village by the same name, St Amand de Coly is a Romanesque style church which is heavily defended by ramparts and high towers.
During the One Hundred Years’ War, St Amand de Coly suffered significant damage and was later the subject of a dramatic sixteenth century siege. However, it was the French Revolution which ended its life as a religious centre.
Today, St Amand de Coly is open to the public.
