The apse and entrance arches of the ambulatory walls of the choir date from the 12th century.  The immense nave is brightly lit with several stained glass windows.  http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5348/9015893592_5a35221629_o.jpgThe church rests beside the ruins of the ancient château built in 1503 by René de la Jumellière. I think that it would have been a very cool visit if I had the time but I was on my way to Saumur and I only had time to stop and take a few photos.http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8129/9015893516_2581cd56d9_o.jpg
