Church, French Heritage monument to Ste paule

Before the Revolution, SAINTE-PAULE, who was attached to Saint-Saint-Laurent-D'oingt, depended on the sénéchaussée of Lyon and the justice of the vicomte de Bagnols.

His Church is mentioned for the first time, in 1078, in a Charter of the CARTULARY of the Abbey of Savigny. At this time, Artaud de Forez gave to Saint-Martin de Savigny "the Church of Sainte-Paule, located in the parish of Saint-Laurent-ISO, for the salvation of his soul, with an if freedom he wanted no vicar nor any other person could not remove anything of this church or its honors by force or by fraud, without being hit with anathema.

The Charter then gives "the confines of Church goods, which are from ornamentations (perhaps the Vernay as put it Guichenon) to Krishna, from Joshua to the Alleus, the Alleus to the Cuironelle forest and from there until the behind of the ornamentations.

Of the old church, rebuilt the first time in the 15th century, the new building seems to have retained a stoup in stone of a remarkable work.

The territory of Sainte-Paule, in the part located to the East of the town, contains significant coal deposits.
