Sights and monuments[edit]

  • The church of Saint-Léger was probably built in the 12th century. The nave and choir were altered in the 14th century. Side chapels were added in the 16th and 17th centuries and a sacristy to the south of the choir between 1760 et 1765. The choir contains murals from the 15th or 16th centuries. The church has been listed since 1936 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.[1]
