The Romanesque architecture

Long before the dukes wrote history in the 14th and 15th century, there were two monastic orders that dominated Christianity in Western Europe: the Cluniac order  and the Cistercian order. The monks turned out to be valuable architects and architects, so that from the year 1,000 we can speak of a Burgundian Romanesque style. Thus, in South Burgundy, Romanesque architecture abounds. Cluny, Paray-le-Monial, Charlieu: all of them masterpieces of Romanesque architecture.
