Basilique Notre-Dame-d'Avesnières

Interesting
This Romanesque basilica, former shrine to Mary and place of pilgrimage, has preserved its attractive east wall. The Gothic-Renaissance spire dates from 1538. In the chancel, there are some attractive capitals, a polychromatic 15C wooden Christ and a marvellous statue of Our Lady. The modern stained glass windows are by Max Ingrand. At the entrance are two huge polychromatic wooden statues of Saint Christopher and Saint Saviour.
