Long Description:
En source Petit Patrimoine:
Municipality which could have been called Chandolas with the two churches, because it is made up of two parishes: Chandolas and Maisonneuve. The oldest church of Chandolas dates back to the 12th century, of which we find remains in the old post office. It was demolished during the wars of religion by a raid by the Protestants. The economy of the prosperous village, thanks to the silk industry, the current church was built in the 19th century
