In the heart of the Petit-Andely, a small village whose origins go back to the construction of Château Gaillard by Richard the Lionheart, take time to visit Saint Sauveur's Church. Its construction started in 1220 at the request of the fishermen, wine-growers and craftsmen of the Petit-Andely, who were tired of walking to Notre-Dame's Church to pray. It houses beautiful statues from the 16th and 17th centuries, a retable from Mortemer Abbey as well as a pipe organ made by Robert Ingoult in 1674 - the oldest one in France that is still in working order. The 47-metre high (154 ft.) wood and slate spire draws an impressive, slender silhouette and shapes the identity of the Petit-Andely neighbourhood.
