Steeple brick wall
From the top of its imposing brick bell-gable, the church of Saint Saturnin overlooks the village of Belpech and adjoins the Baltard-style covered markets that contrast happily with the building. Lying in the heart of the little village, it is remarkable for its 12th-century Romanesque portal, the only remnant of the church erected at that time. The sculpted modillions reveal to the curious observer a frightening bestiary, surmounted by small characters in an illustration of the dangers faced by sinners at the time.
