Church of St James, French Heritage monument to St christophe d'allier

Original Romanesque (12th and 13th century) building, today ' hui disfigured. The apse in ass of oven was very reworked to mitigate the lack of clarity in which the originally condemned the narrowness of the Romanesque Windows. The nave was extended in 1872 with a span in which a platform is mounted. Remains of paint in the ass of oven. Some signs suggest the existence of an Ahmed with Quad and a Mystic Lamb in poor state but that can go back to a primitive time. Steeple comb with solid staircase.
