L’église St-Jean-l’Evangéliste : Bâtie au XIè s., elle est confiée en 1157 par le pape Adrien IV à l’abbaye de Montierneuf de Poitiers. D’importants travaux sont lancés au XVIIIè s. Elle est notée comme très belle et bien voûtée. Convertie en dépôt de salpêtre en 1793, les messes sont alors dites dans la chapelle du château de Péré. La municipalité refusant de l’acquérir, son propriétaire fait démolir les voûtes et le dallage pour construire le château de Grand-Mauduit. En 1813, les nouveaux édiles entreprennent de la rebâtir avec les matériaux du château de Fors. Son chœur est classé Monument historique en 1909.
