About this spot
15th and 16th century church, begun under Bertrand de Rouffignac (1491-1505), the monastery church was completed by Bertrand de la Faye (1520-1540) in a flamboyant Gothic style. The new buildings were burnt down during the Wars of Religion in 1569, causing the abbey's decline which was accentuated in the 17th and 18th centuries. The church was restored in the 19th century (end of work in 1889). Town planning work in 1950. Presence of lapidary remains from the Romanesque period (capitals, modillions) and Gothic (recumbent figures and bas-reliefs).
