A ROMAN GEM

in a natural green setting...

 

 

Built in the Argonne foothills during the 11th and 12th centuries, the Church of Our Lady of MONT-DEVANT-SASSEY is one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Lorraine. Despite lengthy periods of construction, wars and plundering, it has maintained its architectural integrity and sober elegance.


It houses treasures of Roman and Gothic architecture and sculpture : the choir and 12th century open crypt are remarkable. The late 12th century nave has been completely restored and the 13th century carved portal is the oldest and best preserved in Lorraine.
