The nave, which did not escape usual regional painting churches from floor to ceiling, preferably dark galleries, within the portal, the modillions, suffered the restorations of the architect Paul Abadie, who was also involved in the St Pierre of Angoulême Cathedral. There is finally little provoking great emotion, but they (Portal of the façade, arching) deserve it linger. However, all would not be especially to the detour.show original
