Church of Saint Aubin

 

The church of Saint-Aubin dates back from the twelfth century to the time of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Its oldest part is a small oratory situated on the left side of the choir.

The inhabitants of Saint-Aubin believed for a long time that in a sarcophagus behind the altar was the body of Albinus, in fact it seems to be the body of a child of a noble family.

A statue of a woman breastfeeding her son from the fifteenth century was discovered in 1970 in the church.

In 2003, the Romanesque chapel has been demonstrated, and its barrel vault discovered a fresco of the thirteenth or fourteenth century made from a red pigment of antique character.
