Église Saint-André

In the 1860s Paul Abadie also had a hand in the renovation of this church, which was worse for wear after centuries of turbulence in which it was damaged by the Hundred Years’ War, French Wars of Religion and the Revolution.

This has left Saint-André with an eclectic mixture of styles, but a lot of the oldest parts are still visible inside.

The arches in the narthex (near the entrance) are Romanesque, having been completed in the 1100s, while there’s a lot of beautiful old furnishings to see.

The pulpit and altar date to the 1600s and there’s a large set of Renaissance and Baroque paintings.
