EGLISE DE SAINT SATURNIN

The Romanesque church dedicated to Saturnin has been restored in the 15th century after the One hundred years war: vaulted ribs have been added to the two bays of the nave and the "flat" apse of the chancel.

The most interesting part of the church is the façade with two tympanums that were a part of the first church from early 12th century. The north tympanum shows a saint and a bishop. The south one shows Jesus Christ with Saint Jean and the Virgin Mary.

The remnants of the priory are visible on the south side of the church.
