Church of Saint-Etienne

Religious buildings

In the heart of the Norman countryside, visit a church with remarkable carved wood panelling.
Between Bernay and Pont-Audemer, the church of Saint-Etienne l'Allier is part of the treasures hidden the Norman countryside. Built in the 11th century, it houses a remarkable stone recumbent effigy from the 13th century, which was unearthed during restoration works in 1990. But what makes this church popular is its furniture and especially the sumptuous listed carved wood panelling from the late 17th century, as well as the seven stained-glass windows made by the local glassmaker, François Décorchemont, who perfectly mastered transparency and the brightness of colours. The altars on each side of the rood screen, carved in wood, are topped with statues of saints, which were particularly worshipped in the region at times of plague epidemics: Saint Sebastian, Saint Roch, Saint Mathurin, etc.
