Church of Saint-Pierre

   The church of Saint-Pierre in Vaux-sur-Seulles has been significantly altered by successive restorations. The combined tower and porch was dressed with a façade of the classical period. The nave has recently been given large windows in the neo-Romanesque style.
The vestiges of the 12th century are on the other hand still clearly visible on the gable wall of the north wing of the transept and in the walls of the choir and its flat east end in a device of two ranks of arches, which are blind on the first level and open in the windows of the second level. Buttresses complete the typical elevation of the wall of the chevet.
