Photographer's Note

Church Saint-Martin (registered on the inventory of Ancient memorials) of the 12th century, it represents the characteristics of the churches of Gâtinais: nef panelled, more narrow choir with arched arcature, semicircular apse, collateral south reshaped of the 15th century.
Situated in the southwest extremity of the department, in the district of Fontainebleau and the canton of Château-Landon, or near the historic centre of Gâtinais. Aufferville is a small village of 450 inhabitants.
As most of the small churches of campaign, it are opened only to certain occasions today, because of the occasional presence of a priest henceforth in charge of former(old) numerous parishes (while every village had another priest permanently in the first half of the XXth century).
The separation of the Church and the State in 1905 transferred to the municipality the property of the church and the presbytery.
