Church of Saint-Germain

   The church of Saint-Germain in Moyaux is a former dependency of the abbey of Bernay. It originally consisted of a single nave extended by a choir with a flat chevet and a tower built onto the south wall between the nave and the choir. Two chapels were added during the 16th century to the north wall opposite the tower. The south wall of the church has been retained from the Romanesque period, with its two walled-up doors and traces of fish bone bonding, as well as the tower. The square plan tower is on three levels. This dates from the mid-11th century, with the exception of its cornice from the end of the 12th century and its spire.
