The church of Gemeaux was built in the 13th century under the patronage of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and then modified in the 15th century to make it a place of defence. It was thus included in the fortifications, of which all that remains today is the prison tower, at the corner of the ruelle des Tanneries and the place de l'Église
The interior of the church contains interesting architectural elements, such as a 15th century wall tabernacle, a baroque altar (from the College des Godrans in Dijon) and wall paintings. The most beautiful one represents Saint-Vincent, patron saint of winegrowers, and reminds us of the importance of the vine in Gemeaux before the phylloxera
The arches at the entrance to rue Gemelot date from the 19th century. At the start of the rue de la Maison commune, you can see a small square tower with a beautiful renaissance door
Free guided tours of the church are organised every Tuesday during the summer, by reservation only: 03 80 95 24 03
The church was built during the 13th century, then restored during the 15th in order to transform it as a defense place. Some interesting mural paintings, a tabernacle and a baroque altar are to be seen inside.
