Former abbey church, of Romanesque base, of a former Benedictine abbey.
The church Saint Jean de Montierneuf is built in the last third of the 11th century, by the will of a count of Poitou, Gui-Geoffroy-Guillaume.
Supported externally by flying buttresses, pierced by numerous bays, it gives the choir an abundant and unexpected clarity.

The original Romanesque chevet of the church Saint Jean de Montierneuf is largely raised with a gothic apse towards the end of the 13th century.

Seriously damaged during the wars of religion, the abbey church knew in the XVIIe century important restorations, of which the most obvious is the construction of a new facade, following the shortening of the nave.
Former abbey church, the building is built in the last third of the eleventh century, by the will of a count of Poitou, Gui-Geoffroy-Guillaume.
Benefiting from the county's impulse, the progress of the construction site is both fast and sumptuous: the use of freestone for the entire building is exemplary in this respect, as is the great regularity plan.
