This church built of limestone in the 12th century and renovated in the 19th century is dedicated to Nantes' two martyrs, partially destroyed during the Wars of Religion, it is largely late medieval but retains its Romanesque portal and an Gothic trefoil recess. The choir stalls were rebuilt in large part to the late Middle Ages. A granite tithe measure from the fifteenth or sixteenth century, is used as the church font. In 1871, a bell tower was installed. In 1884, a restoration project was planned but didn't eventuate till 1987, when the facade was restored, the west weakened by weathering.
In 2012, the municipality had 1,956 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known throughout the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the twenty-first century, actual census towns with less than 10,000 inhabitants are held every five years, unlike other cities that have a sample survey every year.
