This is the Eglise Saint-Simplicien located in the town of Martigné-Briand. It has a very interesting bell tower which was originally built in the second half of the 13th century but was rebuilt in 1874. From a distance, the bell tower appears to be a missile or even a large rocket getting ready to take off. 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. The 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.
