1 Humilly chapel
Dedicated to St-Eusèbe, a small building from the 13th century (stone pointed arch door) whose facade is topped with a tower. It is equipped with imposing cut-stone buttresses.<br/>The chancel, according to Edmont Ganter, is in a Cistercian style, with a broken-bow barrel vault and a lancet arch window in the rear wall. On this wall we find a piscina to the right of the altar and a tabernacle for the Blessed Sacrament.
