Long Description:
[FR] La première mention de l’église date de 1223.
Elle fut détruite au début de la Guerre de cent ans, puis reconstruite avec ses fortifications entre 1360 et 1420.
Le clocher porche actuel date de cette période et a été classé monument historique en 1907.
L’église avait alors trois nefs : une centrale et deux latérales, moins hautes et mois larges. L’entrée principale donnait sur le sud du clocher porche.
Après 1450, le clocher a été surmonté d’une flèche qui servait d’amer.
