Description

The church captures the visitor's interest from the start, but one should not be deceived by its demeanour of a peasant woman in her Sunday best. Its certainly rustic apse with its decor of billets and its modillions contain Gallo-Roman figurines (Apollo and Mercury, on both sides of the axis bay, Venus to the south), attesting that Christianity had not destroyed every vestige of ancient culture imprinted with pagan representations, but that it was often substituted by them. The bell tower, dating from later, gives a stimulus to the building and is also covered with shingles.
