The Church

The church was built in 1830 and enlarged in 1896 and 1936. The architect was Jean-Baptiste Lesueur. The new church is a typical example of the neoclassical architecture of the beginning of the nineteenth century.

The organ

The organ was bult by Stoltz in 1858. A pedalsection was added later. In the 20th century, works were done by Guitschenritter. The organ was completey reharmonized in 1992-1994 by Claude Jacquard in a neo-classical direction. The original Flûte harmonique was replace by a Basson 16, the Nasard by a Doublette and another stop of Stoltz was replaced by a quinte.
