Church of Saint-Nicolas-de-Villiers-sur-Port

   The church of Saint-Nicolas in Villiers-sur-Port has been in ruins since the beginning of the 19th century. It consists of a nave from the second half of the 12th century, a choir with a flat east end from the 13th century and a tower on three levels built into the north wall of the chancel. Two periods of construction can be discerned in the tower: The lower part is of the same period as the nave, while the final level and spire are of the 13th century. A Romanesque portal, now walled up, opened to the south wall of the nave.
