Tollevast - Saint-Martin

Tollevast - Saint-Martin
The single-nave church "Saint-Martin" in the center of Tollevast dates back to the 11th/12th century. Seigneur Henri de Tollevast, who fought on the side of William the Conquerer in Hastings, founded this church. His tomb can be found inside.

The nave, facing east to the choir. The architecture is very similar to "Saint-Ébremond" in La Barre-de-Semilly, but the carvings here are more interesting.
