Church Saint-Memmie


of Baconnes (25km)

The Saint-Memmie church, which dominates the village, is listed as a Historic Monument. Dating from the 12th century, built in a Romanesque style, it has among other things a 400 kg bell dated back to 1508. It is raised on an artificial plains overlooking the fortified lowland village, which rises to about 3.50 m above street level.

Previous restoration campaigns had been partial or carried out in a hurry (following the damage caused by shell impacts in particular) and had not provided remedies for the structural weaknesses of the building, when they had not aggravated them… In 2019, the church benefit from a comprehensive restoration.

The 360° virtual tour allows you to discover this jewel of medieval architecture since you can access the framework and the bell tower and admire the Katherine bell, also listed!
