The temple probably started life as a residence of one of the knights Hospitalier and then in the 15th century became the village hall before being converted into a protestant temple in 1622. Internally only the galleries retain their 14th century appearance. The central pulpit and pews which form a circle were added in 1860. The temple is a rare example of Protestant church dating from before the 19th century. As well as being a museum it is occasionally still used as a church.Temporay exibition in summer 2014: "Art Profane et Art Sacré des femmes Kuna" of Columbia and Panama. « less
