Ancienne église Saint-Maurice-de-Mairé (Aiffres)

In the 1927th century, the church, land and vineyards were given to the monks of Saint-Cyprien de Poitiers by Guillaume and his wife Arsinde to deserve a more secure place in Paradise. Remodeled in the XNUMXth century, the sanctuary was sold to the Niort merchant Pierre Dubois at the end of the XNUMXth century. In XNUMX, it was listed as a Historic Monument. It's a barn today.
The church has a single nave with two bays having lost its apse. The vaults have mostly fallen, but the framework appears very old and the capitals of the columns remain almost intact. The buttresses of the south facade have been removed. The west facade opens with a door with columns with sculpted capitals and archivolts. This facade ends with a gable which included an openwork belfry.
