This church of modest proportions is located in a cemetery of Merovingian origin as evidenced by the sarcophagi that are preserved there.
His major interest lies in an apse built in small apparatus and welcoming exceptional Carolingian murals.
These last ones show the Crucifixion, the Visitation, the Ride and the Adoration of the Magi, the Bath of the child after the Nativity and Saint Michael fighting the dragon.
The style of the ensemble is both rich and refined.
