The church in the village of Saint Hippolyte was built in the 11th century (nave, choir and apse), then modified in the 15th century (facade) and again in the 16th century (south lateral door). The southern entrance is protected by a porch supported by oak posts and beams.

On the south side, the belltower is 12th century but the stone spire, with its four corner dormers, was added in the 15th century. There is also a round arched window with colonnettes at the level of the bell. Supporting the belltower are some solid buttresses.
