Church of Our Lady

Religious buildings

In the capital of the Pays d'Auge, heavily affected by the bombings of the second World War, do not miss the visit of the church Notre-Dame for two main reasons:
- its stained glass windows, they were pulverized during a bombing in June 14, 1944 and restored with Gabriel Loire modern techniques, Glass Master in Chartres. The stained glass windows tell the story of Normandy and of the Pays d'Auge: the Vikings, the monks of Jumieges, Joan of Arc, Camembert, etc..
- its organ is listed MH, it is the last organ created by Aristide Cavaille-Coll (the twin of this organ is in Moscow). This is the largest organ of the department of Orne (3 manuals, 1800 pipes).
