    In the cemetery stands the Hosannière Cross, a curious monument from the second quarter of the 16th century. On a platform stands 20 Corinthian-style columns which support an entablature surmounted by a pyramidal spire terminated by a cross. This building is intended as a stopover during the Palm procession. The construction is attributed to the Parthenay Larchevêque.

The conventionalists of Rochefort, Lequinio and Leignelot, ordered the dismantling of the cross, to only be restored until about 1825.
