    This neo-Romanesque building was built at the end of the 19th century (inscription 1878 on the tympanum above the door) in the small wine-producing village of Créot, dedicated to Saint-Claude. Small in size, it looks like a simple chapel. It consists of a single nave of three bays, extended by a semi-circular choir with Gothic arches. The altar is surmounted by a tabernacle dominated by a small octagonal bell tower. The circular stained glass window above the entrance door is a representation of the Sacred Heart.
    On the outside, the façade is dominated by a bell tower with two round-headed openings and one on the sides. The semi-circular tympanum of the entrance door shows a cross set in a circle of pearls, itself surrounded by a crown of foliage and a border of alternating flowers and stars. In front of the church is a calvary dated 1737.
