The church of St. James and St. Philip
The department of Aube is crossed by the Via Francigena (which links Canterbury in England to Rome in Italy) and by the Way of St. James (Spain). The discovery (around 825) of the tomb of the apostle James the Great in the forest of Libredon in Spain led to a pilgrimage as important as that to Rome. Many churches are dedicated to St. James, such as this one in Lentilles, which dates from the 16th century. Jacquets (pilgrims) can admire a wooden statue of St. James above the porch. The church, listed as a historical monument in 1933, is the most typical in the Champagne region.
