About Church of Notre-Dame Lady of the Assumption

Started in 1423 under the reign of Charles VII, from a previous Romanesque building, the Notre-Dame de l'Assomption church in Fontenay-le-Comte bears striking witness to the economic, political and intellectual prosperity of the city at the dawn of modern times. Fontenay then depended on Arthur de Richemont, Constable of France: the city was brought to him by his marriage to Marguerite de Bourgogne, widow of the Dauphin Louis de Guyenne.
