Chapel St-Jean-Baptiste, then Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont, now Parish Church of the assumption of the Virgin, French Heritage monument to St jean pied de port

The Church, very slender, is Gothic and this plan lying in three vessels. The sandstone of the walls is very homogeneous and regular purplish color. The times are processed in rubble of sandstone, found in upper part of the walls, especially in northern front facade. South, the chevet consists of five panels cut and is consolidated by buttresses. It is equipped with a polygonal hipped slate roof. Bedside is attached to the gable discovered of the nave, topped by a long Allen slate roof with its aisles. North, the facade is organized under the discovered the roof Gable. The Gothic portal is carved covings and splay. The capitals and the pads of the header are decorated with grotesque figures or characters. It is surmounted by an oculus, single opening of this sober and bare wall. Adjacent to the facade and located to the Northwest, the Notre-Dame gate above a vaulted, arched porch all topped with a classic square three-tiered Tower covered with a Pavilion hollow tiled roof. Inside, very restored, the nave, is slender and austere. Three enfeux arched are dug in the side wall is. The West side wall is also home of enfeux in its lower part. The Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont Church is from the 13th century in its parts the most ancient, fortified moreover. In the 14th century, the bedside is resumed, as well as the Northern portal and probably the West side wall (identical to those of the bedside foothills). During the wars of Religion, the Church is transformed into stable. It is restored in the 17th century, including its bell tower. The Church becomes store to forage in 1793. It is now dedicated to the assumption of the Virgin. It would seem that, until the Concordat of 1801, the building has been rank to Chapel, the parish church Sainte-Eulalie-Ugange. In 1870, under the initiative of Abbot Belçaguy, the Church was renovated
* Thus, the north portal was largely restored and resumed into sculptures as well as the upper parts of the indoor Church from false vaults of warheads. The Northern tribune and its returns, supported by cast iron columns, are built at this time. In 1915, following a fire, was replaced the arrow of the tower by a two-sided roof, then a Pavilion roof. A small missing cemetery was nearby.
