[The church of Saint Etienne]

Sa construction lancée à partir de la fin de XIIIe siècle, se poursuivit au début de XIVe en provoquant la destruction travée par travée de l'édifice roman de la fin du Xie siécle qui la précédait. De cette première période, it subsiste encore des vestiges, à l'ouest et au sud et des décourvertes archéologiques des années 80 prementtent d'appréhender les dispositions de l'ancien chevet roman. Les dimensions exceptionnelles de l'église actuelle (26,5 m sous voûtes et 46 m de hauteur pour le clocher), masquent l'inachèvement d'un chantier qui aurait livrer l'un des plus grands édlifices de la région.

[Translation by Google (with modifications):


Its construction started from the end of the thirteenth century, continued at the beginning of the fourteenth, causing the destruction, span by span, of the Romanesque building from the late eleventh century that preceded it. The first period, remains still exist on the west and south and archaeological discoveries 80 years permit us to understand the provisions of the former Romanesque apse. The exceptional size of the present church (26.5 m vaulted and 46 m high bell tower), mask the incompleteness of a project that would have delivered one of the largest buildings in the region.]
