  • Right near the square and not very well cared for. Has a large gold altarpiece which was saved from the revolution looting of the Abbey. Much remodelled in 18 century so not very atmospheric.

  • A parish church to see absolutely after the visit of the abbey. A living church, furnished and very warm. Built in the 12th to receive the working population needed for the abbey, it will be enlarged in the 15th and 17th centuries. A ballet-shaped gallery borders the building to the north and west. Located on the way to the car park, take the opportunity to take a look at the Sainte-Catherine chapel located a few meters from the church. Formerly located in the middle of the now-defunct cemetery, this chapel sports a lantern of the dead, a funeral lantern witness of a moving tradition.
  • Pretty little church in a very beautiful village that loves greenery, a big gray cat keeps you company ...
