Fronton (pediment)

Fronton is an architectural term for something adorning the top of a facade, window or entrance in the shape of a triangle or a circle segment.
The words fronton and tympan (tympanum) are often muddled up.
This fronton adornes the façade (facade) of the Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul in Châteauneuf.
