Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens Church
 

Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens Church
The old church, located 200 metres southeast of the Castle, was destroyed in 1839 by its owner (the town’s mayor) in order to cultivate the land.
The current church was built the same year, in a different place.
It has a façade whose decor evokes neo-classical architecture from the late 18th century, and which fades into a semi-circular pediment pierced by two bell openings.
The wall-belfry has two twin semi-circular windows opening in a semi-circular pediment, which is encircled by broad flat strips. It is composed of a separate blind central part separated in two by a large horizontal moulding. The lower register is pierced by a semi-circular door, which is reached by a sizeable staircase, since the church is built on a hill.


The Castle

The Castle
An old noble retreat which came under the lordship of Couze, it belonged to Charles Joseph de Losse at the end of the 18th century. The castle was probably built in 15th century. A dormer window dates from the 16th century. The whole château underwent important restorations in the 19th century.
