As soon as you arrive in the village center, the bulbous steeple of St-Etienne church will catch your eye. It’s a real curiosity for the region; nothing like it for miles around! Word of mouth has it that Austrian builders influenced the local masons and workers, giving a German Baroque influence to the construction in the mid-18th century.
Go through the doors of the building and discover other listed treasures. Particularly in the choir… The stalls and panelling are from the Louis XV period and attest to the church’s abbatial vocation. When the seats are raised, you’ll notice that they feature miséricordes (pieces of wood allowing monks to rest, while appearing to stand!). Look up: will you be able to discover the subjects of the scenes in each stained glass window?
