Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul parish church, French Heritage monument to La tour blanche

This church, largely modern, consists of a nave of four vaulted spans of fake warheads, of very narrow aisles and a choir of late Gothic, revoûté broken barrel probably in the 19th century. The square apse is supported by two buttresses bias, which one is carved a niche retaining a statuette. The nave is protected by hollow tile, while the chorus is by de la lauze. The Bell Tower, completed by an arrow, is located on the Western side. The choir of the 15th century of the modern church was the chapel Notre-Dame-de-La-Recluse or Notre-Dame-des-suburbs, occupied by a hospice. The fire in the former St. Sebastian's Church (of the Tower), during the wars of religion, then at the foot of the castle of the White Tower, set forth the Chapel to become a parish church in the 16th century. The buildings of the hospital were used to expand the new Church. In 1897, the architect e. Meunier began to build the western tower.
