The church was turned over as a public monument in the 1990's. I t has undergone loving restoration after languishing for decades. Built in the 1400's, it suffered blast damage when forces resisting occupation demolished the nearby bridge over the Loire. The blast force blew out all the stained glass windows of this historic church. Now, it serves as a center for small exhibitions. We saw what appears to be a semi-permanent display of works in the art form known as genmmail, lovely, unique, and at eye level, which facilitates seeing the complexity both of the design and of the beauty of the work. There are also permanent placards and banners that give the history to this revitalized, old building. It's just off the main town square, on the way to pretty views of the Loire. Unlike many attractions in the area, there is no entry charge. Don't miss it.
