Places of interest[edit]

  • Château : Both wings of the building are flanked with a round tower emphasizing the impression of fortification, while allowing controlled access to the semicircular inner courtyard. The good state of repair of the roof contrasts with the state of neglect observed in the courtyard, whose cobblestones are beginning to be invaded by high grass.
  • The church
