Eglise Saint Barthélémy

Church with a Latin cross plan and a flat apse, the Romanesque nave of which has two transverse cradle spans. The choir was revaulted in the 16th century.
The first bay of the nave is surmounted by a 19th century bell tower. The second span of the nave includes, to the north, the addition of a 17th century chapel and, to the south, a 19th century chapel. The bell tower from 1662 has been transformed into a square bell tower. The gate is of the 16th century reconstruction style. The nave has a cradle on a doubleau. Only the Renaissance decoration of the choir remains. An ossuary has been unearthed under the north chapel, attesting to the age of the place occupied prior to the 12th century.
