Sights[edit]

Saint-Georges Church[edit]

This small primitive Roman style church was donated by Saint Hugues aux Chanoines d'Oulx in 1080. Its original aspects have endured the test of time. The arched porche has been preserved, as has the squared bell tower, which has two arched windows, and is capped with a tall spire. It was classified as a historical monument in 1908.
