Long Description:

"The nave has three bays separated by two rows of pillars supporting cross vaults.As the Templar buildings, the choir is flat with two bays in broken arc surmounted by an oculus.

The bell tower with different geminate bays on four sides is located at the crossing of the transept. The church is equipped in the seventeenth century with a triangular pediment porch surmounted by a low relief.

The bell tower was rebuilt in 1840. It was destroyed with its four pinnacles by the German aviation in 1940. However, it is rebuilt after the Second World War and the church is completely restored. "

"La nef comporte trois travées séparées par deux rangées de piliers supportant des voûtes sur croisées d'ogives. Comme les édifices templiers, le chevet du chœur est plat avec deux baies en arc brisé surmontées d'un oculus.

Le clocher à baies géminées différentes sur les quatre faces est implanté à la croisée du transept. L'église est pourvue au XVIIe siècle d'un porche à fronton triangulaire surmonté d'un bas relief.

Le clocher est reconstruit en 1840. Il est détruit avec ses quatre clochetons par l'aviation allemande en 1940. Toutefois, il est reconstruit après la Seconde Guerre mondiale et l'église est entièrement restaurée. "
