Aside from his Mas Provençal, very typical include its castle and the Jesuit Church of St. Vérédème, fortified 14th century and enlarged in the 19th.
Its features: a massive square tower and spire serving his masons' marks, its barrel-vaulted nave broken, its apse semi-circular buttresses crowned with watch towers. Remember People's Oratory where we once went in procession to the rain
There are also beautiful wrought iron cross, very ornate they are due to the dexterity of the Reverend Roy who was pastor of the town from 1876 to 1894.
Finally, we can admire a beautiful loft and amazing framing the entrance of the pyramid field Beauplan located off the village road Eyragues.
