Eglise Saint-Marcellin

The church and the priory are mentioned from 1252. The cure came under the bishop of Le Puy and the priory depended on the monks of La Chaise-Dieu. The building, of Romanesque origin, must have been built in the 12th century.
The vaults must have collapsed at some indefinite time and replaced by panelling. The bell tower was built in 1834. Building with a single nave and choir with a cul-de-four apse resting on an arcade supported by columns with capitals. Among these capitals, one features a mermaid surrounded by two orants, another bears mutilated heads and a third acanthus leaves.
