  • The church of Thennelières, characterized by its imposing roof both low and sloping and its beautiful spire (supported by wooden posts), offers to the visitor's eyes a very rural charm.
    It consists of a 12th century Romanesque nave with a 12th century ceiling, as well as a transept, a choir and a 16th century apse.
    In addition to interesting statues of naive inspiration (two angels in flesh and blood, a pope - St. Leo III - with a patibular face and a simple Virgin Mary), this modest rural church preserves several beautiful works of art commissioned by the prestigious de Dinteville family, several members of which were lords of the place.
