Eglise Saint Léger à Montfey



Capacity

  • 75 people

This 16th century church is the work of a generous donor. It was built near the Sainte Tanche fountain, reputed to cure certain diseases. For lack of financial means to erect a bell tower, the bell was “temporarily” placed in a small building inside the cemetery… where it can still be admired. In 1955, when the original church was in danger of collapsing, a vast reconstruction project of a smaller church was undertaken, in which a good number of inhabitants took part. This building was the subject of a restoration in 2019. Visit of the church on request at the town hall during opening hours (Friday from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.). For a visit on another day, send your request by email: mairiedemontfey@wanadoo.fr.
