Church of Saint-Pierre

The oldest surviving upstanding remains are those of the church of St Pierre. Previously thought to have been constructed at the end of the 10th century, recent analysis suggests an earlier date (end of the 8th or beginning of the 9th century). A Carolingian church is thus indicated which, according to 10th century legend, was cleared and put out of danger from flooding by Duke William Longsword in 942 for the monks from Poitiers.
