Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, French Heritage monument to St martin de fugeres

Revised in the 15th and 16th centuries, restored Romanesque church in 1844. This church is characteristic of the rural buildings which have evolved over the centuries. The Priory is attested in 1179 as belonging to the Abbey of Saint-Chaffre. The 12th century Church remain the vault of the nave, the walls of the first span and the transept. The Western facade and the Bell Tower-wall date back to the 15th century. The bedside and the rest of the nave were rebuilt in the 16th century. The choir and its chapels have banded capitals decorated with polychrome sculpture from the 16th century (heads of angels, dragons, confronted fish, head of man whose mouth lets out spirals).
