The church of Saint Thomas of Canterbury, dates from the eighteenth century and its bell from 1689. Legend has it that during Thomas's exile in France, he stayed in the commune. In March 1974, the church was the victim of a major theft, with some of the stolen objects eventually being found in Belgium. In April 2015 plans were put forward for a €29,000 restoration of the church, including reinforcement of the framework of the belfry, its waterproofing and roof repairs. Repairs to the nave were also planned.
