Notre Dame de la Gardelle’s Church was built between the XIVth and the XVth centuries in a gothic-meridional style. Sheltered in a Cemetery of Villeneuve-sur-Vère, its main attraction is to be found in its mural frescoes painted by Nicolaï Greschny.
Inside, in 1947 the vicar of the parish asked Nicolaï Greschny to entirely decorate the chapel. The different scenes painted present Mary’s life stages (Annunciation, Visitation, at the foot of the cross…). Other concern the passage from this life to the Eternal one: Joseph’s death, Mary’s dormition, Last Judgement scene, parable of the rich and poor Lazare… All painted in an original neo-byzantine style.
