Dedicated to Très Saint-Sauveur, this church was first mentioned in texts in the 11th century. Its Baroque architecture is integrated into a steep, remarkable, and officially protected site. Today, the church's painted walls and vaulted ceiling offer an incredible décor for the two baroque-inspired pulpits and baptismal fonts, both built in the 19th century. In front of the Virgin Mary alter, in 17th century polychrome woodwork, an inventory of the church's furnishing is inscribed. One of the bells is registered as a Historic Monument.
