The frontage is shapeless on account of the addition of a gigantic buttress. On the other hand, the semicircular apse and the nave of cradle with a “cul-de-four” apse seem to be original. One should note at the left side of the apse’s window two rocks have engraved a 6 pointed star known as the “rosaces carolingiennes” which potentially date the church to pre-roman times.

According to legend, Sainte. Renee was asked to watch over difficult children (her statue is found in the church.)


Throughout the year : open daily.
