The exterior of the church of Saint Barthélémy is classical, but it is inside that (where) the interest of the visit lies. A seigniorial chapel dedicated to the Etangsannes family (whose chateau you can still visit) was added to the nave in the 14th century. The furnishings of this religious building are particularly noteworthy for the presence of a 14th-century limestone funeral plaque representing the funeral of Barthélémy de la Place, who died in 1300 and is considered the founder of the church of Chénérailles. Also noteworthy is the preservation in good condition of part of the stalls and the painted ceiling of the choir.
Guided tour of the church and the town in July / August on Wednesdays. Meet at 11 a.m. at the tourist office 32 route de Gouzon.
