Collegiate Church of Our Lady of Melun

It was built by Robert the Pious, but its façade, remodelled during the reign of Francis I, is Renaissance in style. The Gothic arches in the nave were restored in the 19C and there is an early-15C tombstone in the right side aisle. On the right, near the chancel entrance, is a copy of JeanFouquet's Melun Diptych, in which the Virgin is depicted with the face of Agnès Sorel (one part of the original is in Antwerp, the other in Berlin).
