Long Description:
[FR] De l'édifice originel du XIe siècle, rien ne subsiste. Le chœur, érigé au XIIIe siècle est restauré en 1894. L'abside à trois pans fut ajoutée pour agrandir le chœur devenu trop petit. La tour et son toit en bâtière sont exécutés en 1600. Les voûtes de la croisée du transept appartiennent au XVIIIe siècle. La nef qui relève de plusieurs époques est entièrement reconstruite en 1897-1898 avant d'être restaurée après les bombardements de 1944. L’église Saint-Georges est située dans la ville d’Isigny-sur-Mer, le long de la rue Emile Demagny, en centre ville.
