Église de la Nativité


Covid-19 measures

The church is closed for the 2021 season.


The Eglise de la Nativité is a Romanesque building from the 12th and 13th centuries. It houses a series of frescoes portraying devils and demons from the 15th century. Each wall and vault of the chancel portrays scenes throughout the history of the bible: annunciation, evangelists, etc. The wall paintings are listed Historic Monuments.

The arch of the chancel is decorated with a calendar representing the twelve months of the year with scenes of everyday life. One of the vaults is devoted to hell. A Beelzebub is making a dinner of damned souls, bubbling away in a pot. While waiting for them to cook, the beast is playing the drum with two legs. Prelates, saints and the Christ all compete with each other, but Heaven remains firmly guarded.
