Visiting Église Saint-Martin

Èglise Saint-Martin in Monloué was originally built in the 13th century. After it was almost completely devastated by the Spanish in 1651, and finally a hurricane did the rest, it was partially rebuilt in 1757 and 1758. The choir, which can be seen today, dates from this period.

All that remains of the old church today is the defence tower on the north wall and the stone staircase leading to the escape room on the upper floor. The completely restored new church was consecrated in 1758 and reopened for services.

Inside you can admire a high altar from this period as well as several sculptures from the 19th century, including a statue of St Martin.

The church is normally locked – as it was during our visit – but it is possible to get a key during the opening hours of the Mairie (for opening hours, see the link at the top of the tourism page).
