Croix de Mission

Cross erected on the Place de l'Eglise, along the D 19.
Christ in cast iron of the Jean de Bologna type, on a cast iron cross decorated on the vertical arm, at the bottom with two heads of angels facing each other, (on the lower part of the plant motifs and bunches of grapes which symbolize wine, Christ), ears of wheat, in the center, of a radiation and at the ends, of volutes.

It marks the beginning of the 19th century, the rechristianization of the countryside and the participation of locals in this mission.
