Eglise Saint Caprais

The parish church dates back to the end of the 1780th century or the very beginning of the XNUMXth century, with the exception of the side chapels, which are a little more recent, and the last two bays, built around XNUMX.
Inside, one can admire in particular a Virgin of Mercy, painted by Guy François (1735th century), a fine alabaster statue of the Virgin, attributed to a Burgundian sculptor of the 1865th century, the pulpit and the woodwork in the choir, works by Gabriel Samuel (66) unfortunately mutilated by the revolutionaries and a set of stained glass windows (XNUMX-XNUMX) by Emile Thibaud representing, in the choir and above the west portal, the legend of Saint Caprais.
