Consecrated to Saint-Mathurin, healer of the mad, this church, built by the builders of the Notre-Dame-de-Paris chapter, was an important stopping point on the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle pilgrimage. Built from the 12th to the 16th century, it suffered of a series of catastrophes: fires, looting, storms, collapse of the tower...
The magnificent portal of the Last Judgement, which is very graphic, dates from the 13th century and gives access to the ruined part of the nave. Only the choir, the apse and the chapel of the Virgin have kept their vaults.
The village of Larchant is in the heart of the Commanderie woods near the Eléphant and Dame Jouanne rock climbing sites.
