Church of Saint-Hermeland

    The church of Saint-Hermeland in Boutteville consists of a nave, choir, a tower abutting the north wall, and a porch of the 15th century on the south side of the nave. The Romanesque remains are the doorway at the west end whose arch is ornamented by rows of chevrons, and the chancel arch; both retain interesting capitals (hippogryphs with pointed hats, a man holding a cross, and a snake winding itself around a man).
