Parish Church Saint-Maclou, French Heritage monument to Conflans ste honorine

The borough of Conflans east locates extremely coquettement on Right Bank of the Seine and in stage on the hill which overhangs the river immediately. To penetrate in the center of its agglomeration, it is necessary to climb a street escarpee, bordered of old houses almost all one arrives in little time at the foot of a quadrangular keep which is the last remainder of the feudal castle said Baronie.

This remarkable building is today in a regrettable state of decay it east occupies by tenants who do not have obviously no preoccupation with a his archaeological value. It would deserve more solicitude.

The church

What first of all draws the attention to the church of Conflans, which one meets a little beyond the keep, it is its beautiful Romance bell-tower, of second half of the 12th century. The interior also offers interest. One notices there, in addition to the hunting of holy Honorine, owner of the place, the tumulary stone of Jean de Montmorency, died in 1325. At the time or Mr. de Guilhermy wrote his invaluable collection of the inscriptions of France, this flagstone was still used for the ground of the church and was in front of the furnace bridge of Holy-Honorine one was well inspires by raising it against a pillar of collateral of left, in order to save the insult of time as much as possible to him and mud of the faithful ones. At the end of this same collateral, close to the gate, another statue of knight is seen slept on a tomb which was not made for it. Mr. de Guilhermy thinks that it represents Mathieu IV of Montmorency, died in 1304.
