The chapel

The St. Antoine-l’Ermite chapel was built between the 15th and 16th centuries and is made of sand and flint stones. The arched doorway is the only decorative element and gives it a sober look. Its austere exterior appearance contradicts its rich interior.

Four multi-colored 16th century stone statues stare at the visitors upon entering the church. The 16th century stained glass windows depict the Christ aux Outrages and the patrons. Three contemporary stained glass windows were crafted by Guy de Vogüé in 1964 and represent an abstract version of the Passion of Christ.

The chapel is entirely decorated with wooden panels and stucco ornaments. An oak altar and a 16th century rod iron railing furnish the interior. Until the revolution, the monks of the Fécamp abbey ran the church.
