Long Description:
L'église Saint-Léonard date du XVIème siècle. Elle a subi plusieurs reconstructions. Des vitraux anciens ont été protégés et restaurés.
A remarquer notamment les "grisailles" petits vitraux classés représentant Saint-Léonard et Sainte-Colombe.
En 1972, pour faire face à l'augmentation de la population, le choeur et le transept sont remplacés par une halle en béton armé et charpente de bois apparente.
A cet époque, des vitraux modernes du maître verrier Michel Guevel sont crées dans ce nouveau transept.
