The church of Savigny

In the story

The church of Savigny built in the 11th century is a treasure of small local heritage. One does not suspect such a wealth when one does not know the place.

This church derives its fame from the mural paintings on the nave and the apse (which date from the 14th and 16th centuries), unearthed by L’Abbé Joubin, and which represent The Last Supper. On the other hand, about fifty modillions adorn the top of the exterior walls of the church, all different, you may not see them at first glance but they are splendid! The statuary is also remarkable. A church that really deserves an enhancement!”

A small association very invested there organizes several events in the year with the aim of restoring little by little the building and its furniture.
