Church, French Heritage monument to Puyravault

Ancient Foundation of Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem. Remained from the 16th century in the order of Malta, la commanderie de Puyravault participates in 1643 in the draining of the Marsh under the authority of the Knight François Petit de la Guerche. This commandery, only remains the Church of the 12th century, which presents a characteristic architecture of the constructions of this order: vessel rectangular without transept, vaulted broken cradle. The Church has retained most of its original openings and very simple ornamentation of its Western Portal. The western façade, restored in the 1960s, is surmounted by a small campanile Saddleback.
