Church of St Etienne

    The Church of Saint-Etienne in Beaumesnil retains a number of elements from the 12th century despite many re-workings: the chancel arch decorated with flat heads of beasts, the choir with its straight east end and tower located at the crossing. The tower, in granite, has two stages and culminates in an 18th century dome.
