Religious heritage

Collégiale Saint Anatoile


The origins of the collegiate church date back to the 13th century, when the present building was built on the ruins of an earlier church. Consecrated to Saint-Anatoile, a hermit of whom little is known except that he lived on the slopes of Fort Belin and that he performed a miracle by causing the salt water to rise again, this church has survived the centuries and the ups and downs. Its large, square, massive bell tower was originally a defence tower and the small chapels that frame the majestic entrance door were added in the 16th century. Another original feature of the church is its floor, which is made up of more than a hundred tombstones. The oldest ones date from the 14th century and the most recent ones from the 18th century. Finally, you will not fail to admire the magnificent Gothic architecture of this collegiate church, certainly one of the most beautiful in the whole region.
