Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption-et-Saint-Joseph Church

Recommended
The small church of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption-et-Saint-Joseph, à Case-Pilote, features a timber frame in the shape of boat hull, which is characteristic of local religious architecture in the 18C. Inside it hides a fresco (1863) by Henry Daymier, depicting the Holy Trinity, together with an astonishing mosaic. Scallop shells above the portal and on the stoups bear witness to the reconstruction of the sanctuary in the 18C by the Dominicans following a fire that destroyed the initial edifice built by the Jesuits.
