The medieval church in Jabreilles les Bordes

Find out more about this amazing classified Historical Monument. 

This gorgeous 13th-15th century church has a typical porch containing a wooden stairway leading to the bell-tower. The octagonal bell-tower is also typical of the Limousin region, and its roof is made of chestnut tiles. There are many paintings on the walls, representing 15th century figures.

Lithophany is the innovative technique used to restore the church’s stained-glass windows in Jabreilles les Bordes. Lithophany is a technique which began in the 19th century but is no longer used today.

It is a reminder of the importance of porcelain in Limousin: it involves impressing porcelain objects with figures that become translucent when light is placed within or behind them.
