The medieval cemetery of Ligné contains 70 tombstones from the 12th and 13th centuries carved with religious crosses, banners, knights' swords, brotherhood tools...
Some claim that they are Templar headstones, others totally refute this assertion...
In the middle of the cemetery, remains the base of an old lantern of the dead replaced, in 1954, by a hosanitary cross, registered as a historic monument since 1973.
Hosannere crosses, funeral monuments very widespread in Poitou-Charente, very often surmount ossuaries or mass graves.
