Although the view of the town and chateau from the steps of the church is very impressive, the church itself is a bit of a disappointment. Very gloomy inside, and although there was obviously interior lighting, it wasn’t on when we visited. Consequently it felt...More

Quite close to the centre of town and worth popping into if only to see the magnificent carved Romanesque capitals. These include a female acrobat doing a handstand, Jesus rescuing a lamp from brambles, and all sorts orange animals.
