Beautiful if spartan church, recently refurbished with simple decoration. Interesting remains of frescoes. Worth a look at the pulpit, held up by a carving of a 17th century man, though no information as to who he is.

We found this church more interesting than the St Pierre Cathedral. Contrary to one review, it was not at all dark when we visited. It is somewhat plain inside, particularly the large area behind the altar. There is one splendid tomb where around 6 monks...More

Last time I visited in Sept 2012, the church was dark, gloomy and under some kind of restoration. This visit, it was absolutely glorious - light, spotlessly clean, full of space, modern furniture but, not out of place in a very ancient building. The light...More

This church is fairly large inside with much seating and has a very basic Altar area. Some of the areas to the side are well decorated. Very airy and nice to come into and think and rest. Free to enter.

This is a church built by the Dominicans in the 15th century. Currently closed for renovation the church is unique in that many of the side chapels were built by local nobles. In addition the church is recognized for the trompe d'oeil 15th century painting...More

This church, which supposedly is quite attractive inside, is at present (May, 2015) under wraps and cannot be entered due to restorations.

A calm place to visit for a few minutes of peace. Not as over the top as some lavish French churches and none the worse for it. It appeared to be always open even for locals who took their dogs inside with them.

A quiet church right in the middle of town, a bit dark and not much going on inside but it is a nice little escape from all the noise and bussle of the centre of town right next to it. Also right next to the...More

This rather dark church is a quiet place close to the main road through the city, the town hall ("hotel de ville" or "mairie") and the crowded Pont Perrière. There are some medieval paintings, a beautiful pulpit and an organ from the 19th century. From...More

A peaceful and tranquil church - as they should be! But this felt like a well used and loved place, not quite as 'awesome' as some other churches. It has a character of its own.
