Sights[edit]

The chapel of Notre-Dame de la Délivrance was erected in 1854 by the parishioners in thanksgiving to Our Lady for being spared from a cholera epidemic. An outdoor mass is celebrated on the Sunday nearest the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 8 December each year.

Etymology[edit]

The village is labeled le Puits (French: the Well) on the Cassini map. The French le Puy usually correlates to the Provençal word Puech (an isolated hill). Here, as the Cassini map shows, it refers to the local wells.
