The Saint-Jouin Church
The sole Romanesque fortified church in the department
It is a church built to be a place of worship and a safe refuge against warlike invasions, as shown by the central tower full of arrow slits. This tower was used for the surveillance and defence of the town. It is made of shale masonry and supported by 4 thick pillars linked together by ferruginous sandstone arches. It supports the pepper pot bell tower topped by an arrow from the 17th -18th century.
