  • The state of conservation of this millennial church commands admiration for the builders. Open and welcoming, this church, built in the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, listed since July 1908, has amazing architecture. We enter a large empty church-hall, 15m by 10m. It is the Romanesque nave, at the bottom, a draped opening opens onto the Gothic choir. The elevations are masterful, the choir has three vessels. The whole mixes Romanesque and Gothic styles, an ancient Christ, a few paintings and sculptures, a superb Stations of the Cross, made in 1931 by Paule Richon, a sculptor from Tours, populate the building. A must visit, the corbels all around are superb and recently restored. The 11th century Romanesque bell tower is supported at the entrance to the choir by a cupola with pendentives. The state of conservation of this millennial church commands admiration for the builders.
  • Beautiful church to visit in the heart of the village just as cute. Right next door is the small Saint Mandé restaurant for lunch or simply having a drink .. The boss at the controls. The place is to discover absolutely ..
