Eglise Notre-Dame de Dey (Prin-Deyrançon)

The toponym Deyrançon, from the Latin "Dei" (God) and the pre-Latin "Rançon" (rock), means rock of God. Connected to the south of the village by a bridge, Notre-Dame de Dey, isolated in the plain, is surrounded by its cemetery and a fortified enclosure and archery towers certainly due to its former vocation as a Jacobean stopover located between the Poitou and Aunis. The latter was renovated by a team of young Europeans according to the plans of the imperial matrix of 1811. Burned several times, the Romanesque church was rebuilt piecemeal. Its western facade from the XNUMXth century. is pierced by a door with a broken arch, flanked by two pilasters, surmounted by a polylobed oculus and framed by a modest buttress on the left and a higher buttress on the right supporting a small square bell tower.

To see in the park: remains of a disappeared hamlet (town hall, school and farm).
