Collegiate Church of Notre Dame and its Jubé “MH” is an essential building in the Pays d’Othe. The sober architecture of the 13th century choir and transept and the 16th century nave are covered with a beautiful wooden hoop. The limestone and the wood intimately linked give the treasure of this church “the rood screen” all its importance. Formerly polychromed, this famous rood screen which completely closes the choir is of remarkable finesse and astonishing decorative richness. Wonderful book of instruction and mediation for the use of pilgrims of the Middle Ages, signed and dated 1521. It is the most important and the richest of the surviving wooden rood screens in France. Twenty six bas reliefs decorate the gallery: Gothic style ornaments on the choir side, Renaissance style on the nave side, which mark the transition of art in Champagne at the beginning of the 16th century. The authors here express their belonging to the Champagne transitional art and are inspired by the engravings of Dürer, Schongauer and Cranach the Elder. Woodwork, stalls, statuary, tumular stones from the 13th to 17th centuries, make the Collegiate Church of Notre Dame, an exceptional place where art fully expresses the tradition and history of southern Champagne. Outside, an astonishing square tower covered to the ground with chestnut trees, rebuilt after the fire that devastated the city in 1446, serves as a bell tower for the sanctuary.
