Saint Jacques le Majeur Church

Set on a hill and surrounded by the walls of its cemetery, the church crowns the village and the countryside.

Due to numerous extensions, the church we see today seems to be set on fortified base, especially when looking at the foot of the tower. The enclosed surface is now equivalent to the whole public square! 

Highly visible from the Charlemagne Road, taken by pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella, the church is marked as a welcoming place to rest. While the architectural strategies are clear, the church seems to turn its back to the commercial square...
