Places of interest
- The church of St.Albin, rebuilt along with much of the village after World War I.
- The stone circle of Bonnettes.
In the fields of the commune stands a mound about five metres high, on which are erected five (there were once seven) large stones (dolmen or menhir). The last excavations took place in 1887 but no clues or evidence was discovered as to the origins of the monument.
