    Built in the 13th century on the promontory of the hilltop village of Saint Georges-Nigremont, the church is well worth a detour. The nave, flanked by two chapels, is leaning against a slender bell tower-wall pierced by 3 bells. The bell tower overlooks a Romanesque porch and houses on the first floor a very rare mechanical clock which is accessed by a spiral staircase. Inside, recent restoration work has uncovered a painted funerary band with an exceptional degree of preservation.
