Church of Saint-Martin

    The church of Saint-Ouen in Rosel only retains its square tower from the Romanesque period. This is on three levels topped with a short spire with four sides. The progression of the decoration of the arches follows the elevation according to a widely disseminated model from the towers of the façade of Saint-Etienne in Caen.
