Remains of so-called master Manoir de Pregentil, French Heritage monument to St jean st nicolas

To the XVI E century, the need to widen, light, decorate the old buildings is felt everywhere; in Brianconnais, one adds afterwards in front of the doors of the churches of the elegant porches with columns supported by squatted lions, with the imitation of that of the cathedral of Spray; the openings are widened; paintings, due sometimes to the hand of Italian artists of value, start has to abound inside and outside. The castle of Tallard is increased and restores with the mode of the Rebirth and its elegant vault, of the richest blazing style, is terminee before 1522. Small manors are built in the plains: one of the prettiest specimens of this kind is that of Pregentil, commune of Saint-Jean-Saint-Nicolas. Constructions of the XVI E century meet in the least hamlets; many houses of this time carry their dates registered above the doors.
