Our Lady of the Assumption Church
At the beginning of the 19th century, the parish had a smaller church located not far from the site of the present church. In 1845, it was declared too dilapidated to be repaired and too small to meet the needs of the growing population. The reconstruction was entrusted to Mr. Levêque, architect in Fontenay Le Comte. The work began in 1847 and lasted 3 years. Some elements of the interior decoration of the old church were reused, such as the high altar in white marble, the altars of the Virgin and Saint John the Baptist, the pulpit, the stalls and the large elm Christ, the work of the Nantes sculptor Grootaers-Donon. The project to complete the decoration was drawn up by Victor Clair, departmental architect, and took place between 1850 and 1880. The stained glass windows representing Saint Joseph, Saint Louis, Saint Joan of Arc and the Sacred Heart were installed in 1926. They were made by Luc Fournier, glass painter in Tours.
