Church of Saint-Gineys-en-Coiron

The church is part of the National Registry of Historical monuments. Dédicate to Saint-Genest, the church is believed to date the 11th or 12th century. It has been built on an older place of worship.
The frontage is shapeless on account of the addition of a gigantic buttress. On the other hand, the semicircular apse and the nave of cradle with a "cul-de-four" apse seem to be original. One should note at the left side of the apse's window two rocks have engraved a 6 pointed star known as the "rosaces carolingiennes" which potentially date the church to pre-roman times.

According to legend, Sainte. Renee was asked to watch over difficult children (her statue is found in the church.)
