Saint-Côme church

Saint-Côme-Saint-Damien church

The church dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian is the oldest building in the town. Over the centuries it was destroyed several times, including a. by the Normans in the 10th century, later also by the Calvinists during the Revolution . Since it has been remodeled each time it is rebuilt, it is no longer an architectural unit. In 1838 the abbot at the time, Father O'Reilly, who also wrote a book on the history of Bazas , had extensive renovations carried out. A keystone in the interior has the date 1653 engraved in Roman numerals. The wooden altar is from the 18th century.
