Details

Rectangular church made of three bays, two for the nave and one for the choir, rebuilt after the Hundred Years’ War. The church is surmounted with three extremely curved ribbed vaults. It dates from the 15th century and is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Sicarius (St. Sicaire in French), one of the Holy Innocents from Bethlehem murdered by King Herod (Matthew 2:16-18). A piece of the child’s relics is contained in an elegant reliquary inside the church. Located on one of the numerous secondary routes from Vézelay to Santiago de Compostela, St. Sicarius was worshiped by many pilgrims. During the 19th century, the church was listed as a historical monument and restored by the architect Paul Abadie (1812-1884).
