Eglise Saint-Jouin

  • Eglise Saint-Jouin

This Romanesque church of the 12th century was reconstructed, without addition, in the late gothic style between the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th centuries, corresponding to a prosperous period in Mauléon’s history. Partially destroyed in the Revolution, it was enlarged in the 19th century. This church presents a Latin, cross floor plan, buttresses standing on end at the corners and in the nave. One notices the beautifully created facade, consisting of a rose window and a door topped with semicircular (ogee) arches. Opposite the old presbytery, a manor house appears, built as a priory in the 16th century by the Benedictine monks who retired
