CHURCH NOTRE-DAME DE LA NEUVILLE
Constructed at the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th centuries in Vaux-sur-Somme stones, this building is remarkable for the tympanum on its flamboyant façade whose large bas-relief depicts the entrance of Christ into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
Although the church of Notre Dame de La Neuville in Corbie is famous for its tympanum, a real gem of stone lacework from the Renaissance era, it also hides a priceless treasure behind its heavy wooden doors; a 12th century baptismal font in black stone made by the Tournai workshops which was classified as a movable object from a historic monument in 1895.
