This beautiful Romanesque building was to depend on the monastery of Sainte-Enimie. The first mention of this church dates from 1155. Built in limestone and ocher tuff, this church consists of a single nave extended pentagonal apse, and three bays. Antique-inspired capitals adorn the apse and the choir span. A painted decoration, composed of floral motifs adorns the sides of the apse and the cul-de-four. According to the polls this decoration dates from the 18th century. The bell tower is a recent construction that replaced the bell tower originally located on the triumphal arch. Located at the entrance, above the gate, you can admire a beautiful Romanesque marquee, which was to come from the first building, representing the Temptation of Adam and Eve. In the village, the chapel Notre-Dame or Sainte-Marie, called "The Cenaret". This small chapel could date from the twelfth century, it closes the entrance to the cave in which a resurgence forms a small lake.
