- The Church
Former Saint Aignan priory, Gothic-style. In 1570 the Huguenots set fire to it. it was reinforced then rebuilt in the 19th century.
It consists of a semi hexagonal chevet apse. The ceilings are formed by diagonal-ribbed cross vaults
The portal has deep, slightly pointed arches. Two strong flat buttresses frame the portal’s register. The portal’s tympan dates back to the 11th century.
Its wall belfry has one window. It is topped with a canopy to protect the bells.
A fountain runs along its left side.
The fountain that cured people suffering from ringworm was in the presbytery garden. It no longer exists.

- Rustic Roadside Cross at the place known as “Viradis”
Built in the 19th century by Saint Agne’s blacksmith, it is witness to the skill of these artisans. Up until the 1960s, the edge-tool makers of Saint Agne supplied Monbazillac’s wine growers with pruning shears.
