The church of St Martin, at the frontier of the Auvergne and the Bourbonnais is the most remarkable visit of the  Route des Eglises Peintes .Wherever one looks there are only paintings and decorations of rich inspiration.Two cycles hold the attention : one which makes us relive the Passion of Christ, the other which recounts the tragedy of Sainte Catherine of Alexandria. In the apse, a rare thing : an entreaty in the time of the plague.
