Eglise Saint-Saturnin

  • Eglise Saint-Saturnin

Very little modified since the 12th century, the parish church of Saint-Saturnin is in the style of Romanesque buildings in Gâtine. With an elongated plan, it consists of a flat chevet choir, lit by a large Gothic bay, and a single nave. The whole is vaulted with a broken barrel vault, with the exception of the bay under the bell tower, which is covered with a dome on trunks. The latter supports an octagonal bell tower reminiscent of those of Parthenay-le-Vieux, Secondigny, Fenioux or Allonne. The western portal is protected by a "ballet" porch, rebuilt in the middle of the 19th century. At that time, the church was subject to minor alterations: repair of the vault, enlargement of the choir bay and drilling of the rose window.
