Eglise de Beffery
The site of Beffery is incontestably the seat of a very old habitat. At the end of the 13th century, mention is made of two brothers called “Amanevus and Bernardus de Becferri”. During the religious wars, the church suffered greatly from Huguenot vandalism during the religious wars. The interior of the church has only one nave, entirely vaulted, without aisles. At the end of the nave, sits a statue of Saint Etienne. In the choir, a white marble altar stands out against the circular background of the building. The vault was painted by the Italian painter Mazutti. In a blue sky, three choirs of angels seem to watch over the earth, while, at the very top, a dove seems to imbue it with the divine spirit. Two windows illuminate the whole. Do not hesitate to go around the church you will discover a sundial at the back.
