A classified historic monument, the Sainte-Croix church was founded by the lords of Parthenay, close to their castle, in the citadel district. Founded at the end of the 11th century, the church is said to have hosted the relics of the "True Cross". While the sculpted facade disappeared over the 18th century, the two side doors have retained their pronounced Roman character. During the 15th century, Arthur de Richemont spearheaded construction of the bell tower, which has long since lost its arrow.
