A church cut in half and a lighthouse!
We do not go to Toulx-Sainte-Croix by chance. This village is reached after a series of bends; take the time to admire the landscape. Before your eyes the countryside reveals its deciduous forest and bocage, whatever the season in which you spend your holidays. The colours are always exceptional.
Once in the village, the first surprise was that the bell tower was separated from the rest of the church, literally giving the impression of a church cut in half! Janine, who is Greeter, will be happy to show you around the monument.
Another surprise awaits you: the “lighthouse”! This tower stands on the heights of Toulx-Sainte-Croix. Built from 1932 by a local figure: Abbot Aguillaume; he wanted to make it a place of observation. Although it now houses television antennas and earthquake measurement systems, it is still one of the best viewpoints in the area. Seven departments are visible from its top.
