  • This is one of the area's Roman buildings, comprising a single nave and rounded apse. The church shows the Vilaine and Loire basin fondness for combining local hard stone with imported soft limestone and its architectural composition is set off perfectly by its decoration. It has an Angevin altarpiece from the end of the 17th century and a statue by Robert d'Arbrissel, who was incidentally the founder of Fontevraud Abbey in 1101 (Maine-et-Loire).
