Barneville-Carteret - Saint-Germain

Barneville-Carteret -  Saint-Germain
"Saint-Germain" once belonged to the Grestain Abbey ("Abbaye de Grestain"). It was built in the mid-twelfth century in the center of Barneville-sur-Mer, now part of Barneville-Carteret. During the Hundred Years' War it got fortified, what did not avoid damage.

While the flat choir is a result of the 19th century, the nave, with many carvings, is still Romanesque. The basilica-style church has no transept.
