Traces of arc sealed in the North wall of the first Bay of the nave. Traces of yellow ocher paint and red ochre on the pilasters of the southern Chapel West. The pastoral visit of 1583 mentions a church in the middle ages, probably to nef single, badly damaged during the civil and religious wars. It is only from 1682 the officiating priests of the Catholic parish are known. The Church, restored and extended at various times, includes four side chapels including those of the Virgin, Saint-Romain and Saint-Régis became Saint-Joseph. In 1747 the records indicate the interment of the parish priest of Saint-Romain "in the cemetery, behind the main altar'. In the middle of the 19th century many changes were made to the building among them, enlargement of the openings, the transformation of the gateway to dated 1854 on the key arc and the restructuring of the choir. Axial choir, heavily splayed Bay was probably walled in 1867 during the construction works of the new rectory that is added to the choir of the Church. When the parish priest of the parish, "wanted to rebuild the rectory on the site it occupies today ' today, he had to consider the move cemetery" which surrounded the Church and the presbytery
* the ancient tombs are transferred except those of the choir. While the borough architect Louis Besset built new rectory, in 1868, it renovates and remeuble the Church. In 2001, when the implementation of a new boiler in the Church, excavation work carried out near the North and West walls have unearthed many human bones.
