Long Description:

"The Romanesque church of Saint-Martin is surrounded by a small cemetery remarkable for the presence of very old graves.

The church is in the shape of a Latin cross, its nave ends in a polygonal apse, and its square bell tower is crowned with a polygonal spire.

In the cemetery there is the Calvary (listed as a Historic Monument in 1910) dating from 1559 and restored in 2003. Its pedestal represents four scenes of original sin. "

L'église est en forme de croix latine, sa nef termine une abside polygonale, et son clocher carré est couronné d'une flèche polygonale.

Dans le cimetière existe le calvaire (classé au Monument Historique en 1910) datant de 1559 et restauré en 2003. Son piédestal représente quatre scènes de péché originel. "
