Not to be missed in the church. The monumental replicated organ of Arnstadt on which J S Bach played. Inaugaurated in 2004, visits are held in the summer and during the internationally renowned festival 'Bach in Combrailles' held in the second week of August.


The church dates back to the 19th century. It owes its fame to "The Bach Organ", a replica of the organ in Arnstadt in Thuringia (Germany), one of the few Baroque organs of which Bach was the first owner at the age of 18. Inaugurated in 2004, tours of the organ are organised in July and August. The "Bach in Combrailles" Festival (second week of August) is an opportunity to introduce the music of Bach to the inhabitants of Combrailles and to visitors.
