Romanesque church, in the shape of a Latin cross, which was founded in the 11th century by Hugues IV le Brun, lord of Lusignan.
Built from 1024 to 1110, facing the castle of the powerful noble family of Lusignan, it was remodeled in the 15th and 16th centuries, following the Hundred Years War and the wars of religion.
It includes a triple nave with seven bays, a transept on which are grafted absidioles and a choir.
To see: the crypt (12th century), the north portal called "the bestiary" (12th century), and the south porch (15th century), funerary slabs (17th, 18th century).
Outside, a sculpture of Melusine adorns the bedside.
