(Canton of Pont-de-l’Arche, Eure)

Church of Notre-Dame 

    This rectangular building retains many Romanesque parts re-worked in the 12th century and during the second quarter of the 13th century. Its construction is often still attributed to the end of the 10th century or beginning of the 11th century due to the presence of a fish-bone facing on the north wall of the nave and interpolated bricks between the crown bricks of the arched openings.
More than its early dating, these archaistic elements are probably explained - as in Rugles - by the presence at the site itself of the ruins of a Roman town from which its builders dug out recyclable materials which are evidenced in the various elements in which they are used throughout the church.
