Church of Saint-Benin

    This disused church only retains a gothic choir with a flat chevet preceded by a square tower, the nave having been demolished in the 19th century. The oldest part of the building is the tower from the second quarter of the 13th century. It presents on its west face a walled triumphal arch decorated with chevrons and, on the interior, a series of capitals sculpted with almond motifs, fantastical animals and masks.
