    We visited the Saint-Germain church in Argentan

    The church takes its name from Saint-Germain, bishop of Auxerre, who passed to Argentan
    around 435.
    Its construction began in the 15th century and was completed in the 18th century,
    resulting in a mixture of architectural styles.
    It thus presents to the north a majestic porch which dates from the 15th century,
    a Gothic nave and transept and a Renaissance apse.
    The lantern tower, integrated into the main building, rises above the transept crossing. 
    It is characteristic of large “Norman-style” churches.
    The building has been classified as a historic monument in 1886 and 1889.
