Ancient Saint-Pierre church

Credit : Collection privée

The Roman church was built in the 11th century and housed a necropolis of sarcophaguses made of stone from the Béout. It was destroyed in 1904-1907 because the authorities judged that it was too small and too antiquated to foster the crowds coming to Lourdes. Its furniture, such as some decorative elements, is preserved in the Musée Pyrénéen.
In 1991, the foundations of a square tower and a crossing point of antic ways were found.
