Long Description:
[FR] "L'église Saint-Gervais-et-Saint Protais, dont les origines remontent au Ve siècle ou VIe siècle, a sans doute été victime des guerres qui ont dévasté le Poitou jusqu’au XVIe siècle. Elle doit sa physionomie actuelle à une première restauration de 1604 et aux réfections de 1839 (allongement de la nef) et 1849 (nouveau clocher). Le chœur abrite un retable tabernacle classé du XVIIe siècle en bois polychrome de style baroque. Le corps central représente l’Ascension du Christ, les deux panneaux latéraux la Nativité et l’Adoration des mages. Ces scènes sont encadrées par les quatre évangélistes et surmontées d’anges aux ailes déployées."


En faisant le tour de cet édifice vous pourrez apprécier les différents vitraux qui le subliment. De taille et de forme différentes ces vitraux permettent à lumière d'entrer dans l'église quelque soit la position du soleil.



[EN] "The church of Saint-Gervais-et-Saint Protais, whose origins date back to the 5th century or 6th century, was undoubtedly the victim of the wars which devastated Poitou until the 16th century. It owes its present physiognomy to a first restoration of 1604 and repairs to 1839 (extension of the nave) and 1849 (new bell tower). The choir houses a tabernacle altarpiece classified from the 17th century in polychrome wood in baroque style. The central body represents the Ascension of Christ, both side panels of the Nativity and the Adoration of the Magi. These scenes are framed by the four evangelists and surmounted by angels with outstretched wings. "


By going around this building you can appreciate the different stained glass windows which sublimate it. Of different size and shape these stained glass windows allow light to enter the church whatever the position of the sun.
