How interesting, and how frustrating not to find.
I first thought of Vezelay too, maybe because of the asymmetric facade, but it's not this one.
It looks like a "genuine" romanesque church, but given the shape of the bell tower and the zigzag motive of the porch, I'd say it's more a "northern" style church. Maybe Normandy, Picardy, Ile-de-France or Champagne ? But I can't find any church that would match the picture. What's the source of it ? Sorry it's not that helpful.

maybe this church was destroyed at war times,

Thanks, but it doesn't really give any clue to me. It's a stone village/little town, and so probably not in Normandy or western Picardy. If it's the same place as the first picture, it only narrows a bit the fild of inquiry.
I wondered too whether it was not a place that might have been destroyed during WWI (or WWII). I 'd say north-eastern quarter of France, however vague it is. I'll keep seeking and I'll tell you if I find something.

The second image you posted doesn't look like the same church. The top arches appear to be gothic and a a single window each instead of romanesque with double windows. It is difficult to see on that picture but it also looks like a smaller church to me.

Sorry I can't help you any further.

(PS. I couldn't link to your message as I am 'not allowed' to do so, I trust it's clear which image I meant )

I think , the city probably is Pau, and river is Gave de Pau.
But there is no church like that.

Why do you think this? Every picture I can find of the Gave de Pau shows a river with much steeper borders, in much more rocky surroundings. I also can't find the bridge, and the village architecture doesn't seem the fit the south of France to me.
Finally, it seems like a smaller village to me - at least, the church and the houses along the square. The building behind the lady looks more like a city building, though. I'm not sure it's in the same village as the church and the houses.

I recognized Castle of Pau on other pictures and i think photos are from the same location.

Great job! Did you happen to recognise it, or do you have excellent search skills?

Perhaps I'm an excellent detective
I found by searching on Google image with the words "Romanesque porch Picardy" (in French of course ).

Great job ! A church I've already visited, maybe that's why I was quite sure I knew it. At least Picardy was one of my guesses.
Btw, on your last picture, it looks like the back of the Petit Palais in Paris
Best pic I could find :
