Eglise Saint-Jacques du Bourdet

Following the generosity of the lord of the place, the prioral church was rebuilt in 1778 on new land to replace the vast, half-ruined sanctuary (located on the site of the current cemetery). In 1863, the new bell was blessed, then, in 1868, the church was equipped with a neo-Romanesque apse thanks to the assistance of the commune, the department and the State. An interior renovation was carried out in 1980 (demolition of the ceiling revealing a beautiful framework). The sanctuary was restored from 1995 to 2009 (courtyard, apse, framework, etc.).

To see: single-bay bell tower, lead tank in the baptismal font, neo-Romanesque altar (tabernacle in the shape of a church whose turrets evoke Notre-Dame de Poitiers), stained glass windows of which that of the axial window is the only one to be historicized (representation of the patron of the church with staff, bag and pilgrim's hat).
Cemetery cross (1875).
