The church is nice, but what is most special is the chapel to the right as you enter. It is not always open -- I think Tuesday and Thursday afternoons it is staffed by volunteers who will be happy to explain how what you see includes the remains of several centuries of building. The older woman who was my guide only spoke French, but was very patient with me as I worked to understand:)
Just outside the church you will find a small square, a nice open respite in a busy area.
