Saint Saturnin church

Built in the 12th century, the Romanesque church is dedicated to Saint-Saturnin, the first bishop of Toulouse. Listed as a historical monument in 1990, the church is an interesting building because of the care taken in its construction.

Chapel Notre-Dame-des-Champs

Located at the south-western entrance to the village, the chapel dates from the end of the 19th century. It is cylindrical in shape, with a dose roof topped by a statue of the Virgin Mary overlooking the surrounding vineyards.

Built by the last lord of Favières in gratitude for the healing of his daughter, it was once a place for processions. One of the chapel’s stained glass windows depicts a sower in a field throwing his seeds under the protective gaze of a Virgin and Child.
