1. Église Notre-Dame
Notre Dame Church is a Roman Catholic parish church located in Pontovaz, France. Its importance derives largely from the tomb of St. Gautier and the statue of the Virgin and Child, said to be miraculous and hidden inside, from the second half of the 13th century. The present church also continues the memory of a splendid and huge Gothic cathedral, whose size and architectural quality impressed contemporaries, and it is one of the largest churches in France. Its remains are rare, including the Madonna, some gravestone fragments and tapestries, which disappeared in the church. The cathedral was partially destroyed in 1437 and then rebuilt, having just been expanded in July 1589 when Pontovaz was under siege. That explains why there were not enough resources to build a bigger church after the disaster: people had to settle for a makeshift church designed primarily for quick and economical implementation and with a wooden vault. Its simplistic Renaissance style lacks elegance, but architect Nicolas Le Messier still leaves behind an interesting piece, and there is no lack of aesthetic quality given the limitations. So, contrary to the original idea, the church went through centuries and benefited from some embellishment. According to the decree of June 16, 1926, the Church of Notre Dame was listed as a historical site, and external restoration was carried out between 2000 and 2010.
