Temple de Chauray

In 1844, the town allocated part of the Protestant cemetery for the elevation of the building. Its construction was possible ten years later thanks to a municipal subscription, an extraordinary tax and a state subsidy. Its plan is clover-shaped. The temple was abandoned in 1970, but in 1988 the city obtained a financial commitment for its rehabilitation during the visit of the Minister of Culture François Léotard. Since 1989, the monument, managed by the municipality, has been a place for exhibitions and concerts. Its restoration dates from 1990.
