Eglise Notre-Dame de Fargues to Fargues

This 12th-century Romanesque church was enlarged in the 15th century, and the bell tower was added in 1767, while the sacristy only dates from 1875. A portal decorated with women with diamond heads remains from the Romanesque building. It is located at the level of the sanctuary, which was then a chapel. The ceiling of the church is criss-crossed with strips and bands, a traditional decoration in medieval monuments. In the choir of the church, a Baroque baldachin, with twisted columns and vine scrolls surmounted by Corinthian capitals, houses a Virgin and Child (Monument Historique). The baldachin is decorated at each end with two angels, considered to be masterpieces of woodcarving (Monument Historique).
