The Romanesque village church dates from the eleventh century, the pink marble portal keeps on its pillars, the memory of the mother of a lord of the village. Dedicated to St Fruitful, it has an altarpiece of the main altar made by Trémullas Lazarus (1644). Around 1425, twelve tables assembled in one altarpiece were ordered to the anonymous painter, called Master of Roussillon. This masterpiece of the International Gothic style is a flagship of European painting. It tells the story of Saint Nicolas. The church has a pre-Romanesque bedside flanked by two chapels and a single nave later, in 1380. The door has many wrought iron hinges. St Fructueux hosts many historical pieces.
