  • Have a walk around the old town it's rather nice and extra atmospheric at night. Lots of locals out dining having fun in the old buildings. 
  • At the entrance to the village, she noted in the glances by its very beautiful bell tower in barlong wall, with crenellated Gallery carried by crows forming machicolations. The end of the 12th century Romanesque church (a round path surrounds the Romanesque part of the building), the nave is vaulted in cradle and bedside .ul oven, it was fortified to deal with the many Moors invasions between approximately 719 and 973. At the end of the 19th century, in order to enlarge the Church, large arcades were pierced and aisles were built, which changed the appearance of the building. Inside: at the high altar (altar-tomb), gilded wooden tabernacle; side chapels: St. Joseph, on the left of the Virgin on the right; Statue of our Lady of the dying; picture of our Lady of good help; canvas on the Crucifixion; stained glass to characters; glass colored geometric patterns; Statue of St. Anthony of Padua; Chair; confessional; Tribune. Outside the season and days of mass (rare), the Church and closed to visitors. It is thanks to the kindness of the staff of the Town Hall (she is nearby, across the road) we were able to make the discovery. Thanks again to them. A very nice architecture, hooked by its bell tower. Admitted to Historical Monuments, by order of November 20, 1942.

  • Not easy to find in the old Angoulême, I came across it random walking. I don't know if this is still the case, but the day where I visited him there were flowers everywhere.
