    The parish church, dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Paul, has the shape of a long rectangle, with two lower sides and a chapel to the north of the choir (the Rosary chapel). Most of the building is from the 16th century: the nave communicates with the aisles by large broken arches resting on cylindrical or polygonal pillars. On the western porch, in flamboyant style, a square tower was erected in 1639. At the end of the 19th century, the bell tower, demolished by a thunderstorm, required repairs. Around 1900, the entire south wall was redone and decorated with gable windows. The blazing lattice windows contained old stained glass: only a few fragments remain in the North chapel representing a tree of Jesse and the Crucifixion. The altarpiece dates from the 17th century: the niches house the statues of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. The tabernacle is furnished with several statuettes representing Saint Peter, Saint Paul and a bishop.
