The Romanesque-style church is the former chapel of the episcopal castle of Touvre. The church overlooks the resurgences of the "Sources de la Touvre".

In its current state, the church has a unique nave with 3 bays and a narrow chancel. A square steeple, from the Classic period, has been added in the north side of the façade.

The church, the four capitals of which have been classified as Historic monuments, has gone through lots of devastations during the Middle Ages wars.
It has been restored several times in the 17th and 18th centuries.
