Reasons for trip

POMIÉS is on top of the plateau above the south bank of the River Lot, near St Sulpice. It is a small farming settlement surrounded by big open fields with fences. This is cattle country with pasture, hay, grazing and some maize.

At the centre of the settlement is Chapelle St-Pierre. The building is of unknown date but thought to be pre-Romanesque and restored in 19thC. It is a stone building with a very tall and narrow nave with small pointed bell cote and an assortment of different roof lines for the transepts, sacristy etc.

Entry is through the west door which has a pointed arch dated 1850 and a round window above. Inside wooden steps lead up to the gallery. There are small statues of Notre-Dame de Lourdes and Joseph with the young Jesus on the chancel arches. There is a small free standing mass altar. Behind is a white marble high altar with a carving of the Lamb of God with a sunburst on the base. Above is a white marble host box with a crucifix and candlesticks on the shelves beside it. Above is a picture of the nativity.

The north aisle has an altar with a bishops mitre and crossed keys on the base, a statue of St Peter above and a picture on the wall.

The south aisle altar has a M monogram on the base with a statue of Mary and Child with candlesticks and a picture above.

There is nothing to do here. There are a few scattered farms and other buildings. Thee is nothing to encourage the tourist to find Pomiés and stop. We did and got a flavour of rural France going about its business and oblivious of the outside world.
