Church Saint-Etienne, French Heritage monument to St esteben

The parish of Saint-Esteben is mentioned as early as 1320, but the current church seems not earlier than the 17th century
* It was probably rebuilt or highly resumed in the 17th century after the destruction caused by the wars of religion. On the other hand, the west facade wall, which opens the gate surmounted by the 1692 date is posterior to the walls of the nave. Can therefore forward the hypothesis of a reconstruction in the first half of the 17th century, post-1620 (update to the not the huguenots), and a resumption of the facade in 1692, followed in the 18th century by the construction of the presbytery supported it, and through the Interior of the Church (stands, chorus), completed in the 19th century (the chancel railing). Good example of basque traditional church, with a single nave, with panelled ceiling, double level of forums and rich furniture decor at the level of the choir. The Town Hall is located in the former presbytery of the 18th century.
