Basilique St-Martin-d'Ainay

Devoted to Pascal II in 1107 this basilica has undergone many overhauls in its time. The bell-tower porch finished by a pyramid framed by some bizarre acroters has a distinctive silhouette. Inside there are some beautiful capital columns. The chapel of Sainte-Blandine is purported to have housed the martyr's remains.
