Long Description:
[FR] L'église a été profondément remanié au XIXe siècle.

Montchamp à 12 kilomètres de Saint-Flour, sur les flancs de la Margeride, n'a rien conservé de son antique gloire. Ses habitants ignorent que ce nom a retenti dans les salons de Versailles ou d'Amboise et surtout sur de nombreux champs de batailles. La plupart des commandeurs de Montchamp furent des officiers généraux des armées françaises ou des maréchaux de Malte.

[EN] The church was substantially reworked in the 19th century.

Montchamp, 12 kilometers from Saint-Flour, on the slopes of the Margeride mountains, has preserved nothing of its fomer glory. Its inhabitants do not know that this name resounded in the halls of Versailles or Amboise and especially on numerous battlefields. Most of the commanders of Montchamp were French army officers or marshals of Malta.
Name of Military Order: Knights Hospitaller
