The Notre-Dame church was probably built in the 15th century. It was extensively rebuilt in the 17th and 19th centuries and heavily damaged during the First World War. It was restored in 1922\. At that time the arms of the transept and the north aisle were rebuilt and the whole building, which was inaugurated in 1923, was consolidated.
