Former church

    The ruins of the choir of the former church of Saint-Sauveur-de-Pierrepont are located in the cemetery. The sculpted decoration is remarkable with bases showing animal heads, and two inlayed plaques at the entrance to the choir, representing the two evangelists: saint Mark, in the form of a lion, whose paws are placed on a book, and saint Matthew under an arch, also holding a book.
A relief showing the Christ in Majesty in a mandorla has been moved to the new church of Saint-Sauveur-de-Pierrepont.
