The layered romanesque chevet, elevated during the 12th century, is the most remarkable part of the building. The choir is encircled by an ambulatory that opens on 5 radiating chapels. The footings date back to the first half of the 12th century.
Great place of pilgrimage in the Middle-Ages, Our Lady of Avesnières became a balisica in 1898.
