Eglise Saint-Romain reviews
The current church, in neo-Gothic style and with its 41 meter spire, was built between 1894 and 1896 by the city architect, Andoche Parthiot and was consecrated in 1902. It is placed under the name of Saint Romain († 560), instructor of Benedict of Nursia in Subiaco who, coming from Italy, settled in a cave in Druyes-les-Belles-Fontaines (Yonne), of which he founded the village and its monastery by becoming the first abbot. The current building follows several reconstructions. The first church, in Romanesque style, dates from the 12th century. It was later replaced by another wooden roof with a Gothic-style bell tower. In 1722, the church partially collapsed causing many people to be killed and injured. The following year, lightning caused a fire there. Rebuilt again, it was demolished during the Revolution. It was rebuilt again in 1824, but considered too small, so a final reconstruction took place in 1894 to make way for the current church. Late 16th century marble pietà. Impressive 19th century marble baptismal font, open daily. Very pretty stained glass windows. You can gather there in peace.
