Long Description:

"The parish church of St. Pierre de Courtémont is a 32.5-meter-long building with a Latin cross plan.

From the original Romanesque building, preceded by a more recent porch, a single nave opening with a semicircular portal.

The ship, lit by small bays in a slightly broken hanger, is covered with a wooden ceiling. The transept and the choir, completed by a three-sided apse, were built in the 16th century.

These parts, lit by grating bays, are covered with ribbed vaults. The date of 1583 appears on the keystone of the cross.

The vaults of the choir were rebuilt in the early eighteenth century. A small bell tower rises above the crossing.

St. Peter's Church has been included in the supplementary inventory of Historic Monuments. "

" L’église paroissiale Saint-Pierre de Courtémont est un édifice de 32,5 mètres de long présentant un plan en forme de croix la­tine.

De l’édifice roman primitif subsiste, précédée d’un porche plus récent, une nef unique ouvrant par un portail en plein cintre.

Le vaisseau, éclairé par de petites baies en cintre légèrement brisé, est couvert d’un plafond de bois. Le transept et le chœur, terminé par une abside à trois pans, ont été édifiés au XVIème s.

Ces parties, éclairées de baies à réseaux, sont couvertes de voûtes d’ogives. La date de1583 figure sur la clé de voûte de la croisée.

Les voûtes du chœur ont quant à elles été reconstruites au début du XVIIIème s. Un petit clocher de charpente s’élève au-dessus de la croisée.

L’église Saint­ Pierre a été inscrite à l’inventaire supplémentaire des Monuments historiques. "
