Church of Sainte-Marguerite

    The church of Ducy-Sainte-Marguerite has retained a Romanesque nave with a fish bone pattern bonding. The 13th century tower, located on the north side, rests on a Romanesque base. The choir which is later dates from the 15th century. The most remarkable Romanesque element decorates the gable of the east portal. This is a relief portraying two figures kissing, perhaps a representation of Saint Anne at the golden gate.
