Eglise Sainte-Catherine de Magné

The primitive Saint-Germain d'Auxerre building, built in 936 by the Charroux Abbey, was destroyed by the Normans. In 1508, a chapter of six canons under the name of Sainte-Catherine was founded by Catherine de Coëtivy, niece of the king and wife of the lord of Magné. The church was built in 1521 by the architect Mathurin Berthomé. The vaults collapsed in 1568 following the pillaging and burning of the Huguenots. In 1789, the monument became a fodder warehouse and a military hospital for the scabby in 1793. It was restored in the 1913th century and classified as a Historic Monument in XNUMX.

To see: “Virgin Changing the Child Jesus” (18th century canvas?), Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament with 18th century altarpiece, stained glass windows and statues from the 19th and 20th centuries.
