The Saint Georges church was built in the 13th century on the site of a primitive shrine, a very early place of pilgrimage. The façade is in Renaissance style; the gate, sometimes attributed to Jean Bullant, consists of a tympanum leading to columns grooved in Corinthian capitals, the whole surrounded by a very decorated classic entablature, surmounted in the extremities by two roof lanterns. The salamander and the initials of the king Francis I of France appear on the spandrels.
The stone baptismal fonts date from 1524 and are decorated with bas-reliefs representing plants. The building also has a gravestone in double effigy of Guillaume de Belloy, a pulpit and an 18th-century panellings, opposite a 17th-century banc d'œuvre surmounted by a pediment.
