Historic site and monument

Eglise Notre-Dame de l'Assomption

Former chapel of a Benedictine priory dating from the 12th century, the parish church of La Chapelle-Faucher was in pure Romanesque style with cupola and numbered three bays. Very damaged by the English in the 14th century, it lost one bay during its restoration. The portal was moved to the south side of the second bay along with what remained of the sculptures of the old door. The apse has the shape of a semi dome, the crossing is still surmounted by a cupola on pendentives. A Gothic style lateral chapel, added on the south side, is owned by the landlord. The inside of the church is ornamented with mural paintings protected by a plaster coating.
