A network comprising some one hundred either fully or partially-Romanesque churches and chapels throughout the Charolais-Brionnais country, all influenced by the Cluny-inspired religious centre in Paray-le-Monial. All three of these Romanesque trails have been specially marked by the presence of signs, both on the roads and inside the monuments, as well as by a series of trilingual guides (French/English/German) available in the Tourist Offices and churches located along the route. Paray-le-Monial's Romanesque basilica, a replica of the Cluny III abbey church, lies at the heart of three historical discovery itineraries. 1) Paray-le-Monial and the Romanesque churches in the Brionnais country (110 km). Ten significant Romanesque churches serve to shape this circuit: Montceaux-l'Etoile, Anzy-le-Duc, Baugy, Semur-en-Brionnais, Saint-Julien-de-Jonzy, Iguerande, Châteauneuf, Bois-Saint-Marie, Saint-Germain-en-Brionnais and Varenne-l'Arconce. 2) Paray-le-Monial and the Romanesque churches in the Charolais country (115 km). Two significant churches are included herein: Gourdon and Mont-Saint-Vincent. 3) Paray-le-Monial and the Romanesque churches of the western Charolais country (120 km). Itinerary highlights: Perrecy-les-Forges, Toulon-sur-Arroux, Issy-l'Evêque and Bourbon-Lancy (the Saint-Nazaire Church).
