Long Description:
FR L’église Notre-Dame, au Rocher d’Ongles, est construite au XIIe ou au xiiie siècle. Elle a été appelée Notre-Dame de Pitié, du Revers, de Revots ou de Benonos. Il subsiste de l’état original le chevet, le mur nord, une partie du mur sud. Le mur sud et la voûte, en berceau brisé, datent du xiie siècle. La nef comprend trois travées, débouchant dans un chœur à chevet plat. L’ensemble est fait d’un appareil petit mais régulier, sans être monotone selon Daniel Thiery.
La seule porte est au sud, et daterait du xviie siècle. Le clocher date de 1862. Son chœur est entièrement recouvert de peintures du xviie siècle, la voûte étant peinte au siècle suivant, dont un tableau représentant la Présentation au Temple et saint Michel, du xviie siècle, classé monument historique au titre objet. À proximité se trouve un bâtiment construit en 1866, qui a servi d’école de filles puis de presbytère.
