Church of Notre Dame de Bonne Garde

On the pilgrim route to Compostela, this church became a regular stop for pilgrims on account of its relics which include some of France's oldest. Founded as a Cluniac priory in the 11C by the lords of Montlhéry, it has been a parish church since 1913. The nave is Romanesque, but vaulting, tower and façade are Gothic. The 13C tympanum (damaged during the Wars of Religion and surmounted by 15C arching), depicts the Dormition of the Virgin.
