It was built in 1864 on the site of a former Roman church. When it was demolished, it was discovered that the building had been built on stilts, as the soil at the time was not stable enough for heavy 12th-century Romanesque buildings.

The St. Pierre-es-Liens parish church was built in 1864 on the site of a fortified Romanesque church that was demolished in 1857. During the demolition work, it was discovered that the building was built on stilts, like Venetian palaces. This proves that the ground was not stable enough at that time when the marshes were a trap for the heavy Romanesque buildings of the 12th century. The abbey convent was founded in 1208, completed in 1218 and is an important construction next.
