Eglise Saint-André

Overlooking the Louts valley, the terreplein of the Romanesque church of Saint-André in Bergouey offers a remarkable panorama of the Chalosse and the Pyrenees. The fortified tower, built in the 12th century, has a defensive walkway at its top, allowing you to move around in safety from possible attackers. The main interest of the church comes from the wooden furniture (from the 17th to the 19th century). The balustrade of the tribune and the communion table are the most striking features. In the main choir, an altarpiece offers pilasters and fluted columns. These frame a painting representing the Crucifixion. The tabernacle represents Saint Andrew, patron saint of the parish, and Saint Wolf (Saint Leu). A fountain located near the church is dedicated to him. As is often the case in the churches of Chalosse, the main portal still has its old woodwork, here from the 18th century.
