Saint Etienne church of Lion-en-Sullias

This 12th century church was listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments in 1992. It is Norman style and was built above an ancient Merovigian crypt. In the 16th century, a wooden “caquetoire” was added to it. “Caquetoires” are also a distinctive feature of Sologne architecture. They were used to discuss matters concerning the parish, and more generally to gossip…Inside the church, one can admire a painting representing the Lowering of the Cross, presented to the church by local artist Nicolas Méchériki  in 1997.Two tombstones, which make up the steps to the altar, contain the tombs of the lords of the castle of Cuissy.
