Religious heritage

Prieuré Saint-Christophe


The monks founded a priory and a chapel dedicated to Saint Christopher, which served as the parish church until the construction of the present church dedicated to Saint Agnan. In the 10th century, the abbey of Saint-Marcel-lès-Chalon, of the Cluny order, usurped the priory's property, which was confirmed in the 11th century. Destroyed in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in the 15th century. In 1663, the priory, without any mark of conventuality, is said to be a rural establishment of Cluny. Acquired during the Revolution by Jean-Baptiste Lhomme, the priory became a farm and was badly damaged. Bought by its current owners, it has been restored, notably the chapel decorated with beautiful frescoes.
