Harmonic romanic building on the bottom of a green valley, really worth the visit, especially for the interior: all the columns in the chorus are decorated with scenes from the Bible, amazing as they are well conserved/restored.

Contrary to some earlier posts, this is a very old church which is still very much in use and not a museum! It dates back mainly to the 12th century and boasts magnificent stained-glass windows and elaborate stonemasonry capitals to the many columns.
