The church[edit]

One of Yvignac's most prominent landmarks, reflected in the town's name, is the tall tower of its church. This tower is not a steeple, tapering to a point, but has a flat roof. Also inside the church at the back entrance is a large old coffin, and a wall. This wall is split into three sections, the top sowing a grail, possibly being the Holy Grail. The bottom left is a shield and sword, on the shield is a cross, this could be a major artifact, we know that this could point to the Knights Templars. the last bit of the shield was faded.
