Eglise de Trois-Monts



Alexandre de Gallery, a former French Empire cavalry officer, retired to his castle in Trois-Monts from where his favourite leisure pursuit was to modify the church. The carved pulpit, surmounted with wooden statues, is of Renaissance style, as is the new choir, in which 24 helical column stalls are installed. The carved wood portal under the tower probably dates from the 12th century.

The church is isolated in the midst of the woods, 500 metres to the west of the village. It was once part of the seigniorial estate of Trois Monts, the monumental castle and outbuildings of which were demolished after World War II, failing sufficient maintenance. Only a few vestiges of the enclosure wall remain.
