Notre-Dame-de-la-Nativité Church

The Church of Notre-Dame-de-la-Nativité was built in the 12th century. This Romanesque monument has been considerably altered over the years, so that only the foundations are original today.
The walls, for example, were raised shortly after the Hundred Years' War to allow for the construction of refuge rooms in the attic. The Romanesque facade, on the other hand, was reworked during the Gothic period.

The use of grison, a local grey stone that is very common in this part of the Charente, limited the sculpted decoration to its strictest expression, as this stone is unsuitable for sculpture. On the other hand, the church has a painted fresco, rediscovered in the sanctuary during restoration work.

Like all medieval churches, Notre-Dame de Brossac was once surrounded by a cemetery, which was abandoned in 1843. On the outside, in the north wall of the nave, two funerary vaults remain, intended to house the burial of high-ranking.
