Because of the destructions wrought by the Revolution, the artefacts that still exist are rich but no longer exceptional. For instance a lot of sculptures were hammered down as well as several tombs. However, what remains and what was added in the 19th century is definitely worth a visit.

(carved wood)


Chapel of the Rosary, in baroque style (time of king Louis XIII, first half of the 17thc.) An exceptional canvas (St Domenico receiving the Rosary - see the 'paintings' page) is mounted in the altarpiece made of carved and gilded wood. Above a statue of the Virgin dating from the 17th century.



The high altar in Louis XVI style ( i.e. late 18th century) comes from a former Carthusian monastery in Gaillon (a nearby little town), the original altar having been destroyed during the Revolution.
