Church of Saint Martin d’Anglars

Church of Saint Martin d’Anglars

This is the parish church of Saint Maurin. It is situated on a level outcrop where its bell tower was able to play a defensive role. During the Hundred Years’ War, the original parish church was burnt and destroyed in 1356 by the Black Prince’s men. The church was rebuilt in 1525. This date accounts for its flamboyant ogival style.

Mill and church ND de Ferrussac

Mill and church ND de Ferrussac

The origins of the fortified mill of Ferrussac go back to the first centuries of our era. Indeed, the church located on the estate (Notre Dame de Ferrussac) most probably rests on the foundations of a Gallo-Roman villa, as attested by the ac ending of the name.
This fortified mill was bought by the abbot of Saint Maurin in 1424; Jean I de Boville usurped its rights and, after arbitration in 1452, kept the estate. It remained in the de Boville family and was offered in 1606 to Bertrand I d’Audevars.
