Long Description:

"The first church, with wooden pan dates back to the thirteenth century with the creation of the parish of the same name, in the early fourteenth century a bell tower was added and a portal completed in 1662.

A major restructuring desired by Abbé Chapiteau was conducted from 1885 by the architect Ernest Collin; the old gate was dismantled and is currently Henri Vendel passage in the courtyard of the Hôtel Dubois de Crancé.

It is decorated with many windows dating from the fifteenth century for the oldest. "
