Touring sites

Reuilly is anchored in the history of Berry. It was able to keep important monuments for a village
of 2000 inhabitants.

The Lordship of Reuilly

Seigneurie de ReuillyIn the 6th  and 7th  centuries, Reuilly was dominated by a religious lordship dependent on the royal abbey of Saint-Denis,  until 1659. By that time, Messieux de Saint-Sulpice took over until 1789.

The lordship of La Ferté originated after the troubles caused when the Normans came. In the 12th  century, the Templars built a Commanderie in Ormeteau, on the West of the parish.

The Romanesque church

Église Saint-DenisIn the center of the village, the current church replaced a building based on a crypt which dated from the end of the Carolingian era. Built in the end of 11th  century, the church of Reuilly, Romanesque style, is dedicated to Saint-Denis. After important renovation work in 1936, it kept the beautiful aspect of these old white stone churches.
Church opened all year long ; open crypt from Easter to October or on request in the Tourist Information Centre.

The crypt of the church

Specialists date the crypt of  Saint-Denis church between the 9th  and 10th century. It is even authenticated as the oldest heritage of this type in the department. It includes three corridors, with six pillars, and an underground passage gives onto a very beautiful cellar located under the priory (you can visit the crypt but not the cellar, which is private property).

"Cellier-Dieu" or "Grande Maison"

Not far from the church, the « Grande Maison » dominates the roofs of the Village. Old hospice before 1700, dependent on the population of the village, this establishment welcomed sick old men. The south pinion of the building presents a beautiful set with mullioned windows of the 15th  century.
