(c) Jean-Claude Brédar says of the history of this building :

Près de l'édifice un panneau explique que les premières églises en pierre devaient ressembler à celle-ci. La chambre carrée située sur la tour permettait à la population de s'y abriter et on tirait l'échelle d'accès pour être à l'abri d'envahisseurs!
