Beautifully restored church with a monumental organ. A visit to the church is definitely worth it.

Great beautiful church for concerts, etc. very old church of 68 meters long. At this time there was a concert. The church has digital screens to see everything clearly. Nice overview of everything. Highly recommended to come and see the church. Open daily from 9am to 5pm

Impressive interior! Such a building in such a small community ... Definitely worth a visit, even if it doesn't look like it from the outside (apart from the imposing size)

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
