Church of St Peter and St Paul

Interesting
This 13C Gothic church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, made of sandstone, was built on the site of an earlier Romanesque church, whose square bell-tower is the only remaining feature. Inside, note the 11m/36ft-high fresco of St Christopher, dating from the 15C and the oldest painted figure known in France, and some stained-glass windows dating from the 13C. The magnificent Gothic cloisters against the north wall of the church were never finished.
