This 12th to 13th-century edifice was partly rebuilt in the 15th century. The northern chapel bears the coat of arms of Razès-Monisme. At the beginning of the 19th century, an engraved piece of limestone was embedded into the exterior north wall of the second bay of the nave: it represents the symbol of the blessing hand with two fingers folded in on a Greek cross.

2 stained-glass windows are interesting because they have been produced by Francis Chigot, a famous stained-glass maker (see the Art Deco stained glass of the imposing Bénédictins Railway Station in Limoges constructed according to Roger Gonthier’s plans).
