The building of this impressive Notre-Dame-de-la-Chapelle Church shows well the transition between its original Romanesque to later Gothic launched in 1210 that was eventually completed during the 13th century.
This church suffered all through history’s turmoil: transformations, a bombardment, fire, pillage, and multiple reconstructions dating from 15th century, as well as many long and meticulous restorations along the 19th and 20th centuries. Although mainly Gothic, the most striking feature of its outline is its somewhat perplexing looking Baroque Bell tower that was added after the 1695 bombardment.
