Witness to 10 centuries of social and religious life, the church, now under the patronage of Saint Denis, celebrated on October 9, was probably built in three stages from the early 11th to early 13th.

The Bell Tower and the apse, in Romanesque style, are the oldest parts, while the nave, with its broken barrel vault, is a Gothic style construction.

The 19th century saw the construction of the sacristy (1821) and the addition of the side aisles (1845-1846) that gives the building its current and final aspect.
