Église Saint-pierre

Cultural Heritage, 




The nave of the church must be from the first half of the 13th century. In fact, there is no entrance door to the west but there are two lancet windows surmounted by a rose of small diameter

The southeast wall is pierced by a door, the main entrance to the church, around which flattened heads can be seen. The lintel of the door above the tympanum is polylobed, which seems to herald the first part of the 13th century, with transitional modillions reigning under the cornice.

The choir, which is lower than the nave, appears to be older and to date from the second half of the 12th century. On the tympanum of a small doorway, to the south, we see St Peter seated, dressed in a chasuble, holding a crosier in his right hand and two long keys in his left hand, a cockerel is at his feet. This bas-relief is little excavated

Between the choir and the nave, a small tower with an octagonal pyramid has been grafted onto the gable that surmounts the great arcade, which does not appear to be as old as the nave.

The Church is under the invocation of St. Peter. The tithes were collected for two thirds by the abbeys of St Stephen and St Trinity of Longues and for the remaining third by the priest.
