Church of Saint-Martial de Lestards
Une église unique en France
In the early 14th century, Lestards was under the patronage of the Commandery of Saint-Antoine de Viennois. The church has Romanesque supports and barrel vaults dating from the late 12th and early 13th centuries. The ribbed vault in the square of the transept dates from the 15th or 16th century. The west entrance facade is a wall-gabled bell tower, flanked by four buttresses at the corners. The building has a thatched roof (unique in France). Its interior decoration (sculpted capitals) has been enhanced by recent restoration work. Free admission, 8am to 7pm.
