S. Guichard

Built from the 13th to the 16th centuries, the church offers an interesting insight into the evolution of architectural styles: from Rayonnant and Flamboyant Gothic to Renaissance. Boasting a magnificent 14th century spire of a height of almost 260 feet, the church is currently undergoing restoration. Of particular interest: the choir vault, the Flamboyant Gothic ambulatory chapels, the carved capitals on the 3rd nave pillar, on the north side, presenting four scenes inspired by medieval novels on knighthood and satirical writings. Organ by J.F. Dupont, built in 1997.
