  • The current church dates from the 19th century. It was not until 1821 that the structural work determining a simple plan was completed, a decade would still be necessary for the interior decorations. It will subsequently undergo numerous restorations due to a weakness in the original construction.

    The Notre-Dame de la Fosse church replaces an older building which served as a collegiate church (from which its fine equipment was derived). This collegiate church, founded in 1529 by the lords of Guémené, consisted of eight canons and four archpriests. Today, only the old chapter stalls are preserved in the church, the carved panels of which serve as ornaments for the side altars. The main originality of this church is its absence of a bell tower. It collapsed in 1757 for lack of maintenance. To replace it, a bell tower was built in 1761 over a height fifty meters from the church. It is a large square tower surmounted by a dome.
