History[edit]

The church[edit]

A chapel was founded in 1278, which was destroyed 1636, and rebuilt in 1773. The chapel was replaced by the present church in 1825.

The church tower is "en peigne". The commune's council refounded the main bell in 1963, because it was cracked.

A little fountain at the base of the church adds to the village's charm.

In it are:

The castle[edit]

The old castle cannot be visited. Only the outside and the ramparts are visible.
