    Church St André is one of few examples of Gothic architecture in the South of France. It was designated with three naves and three apses. Construction of the edifice streched from the end of the XIIIth to the middle of the XVth century. The church, with its dungeon pierced with twin bays, its corner watchtowers, its hoarding and its drawbridge, was designated to protect Montagnac and its market fairs from roving hordes of brigands.
