Witness to a rich history and spiritual heritage, the Sainte-Marie-Madeleine basilica dominates the picturesque village which has kept its ramparts, gates and walkway.

Starting point of the pilgrimage to Saint-Jacques de Compostela, a masterpiece of Romanesque art, the basilica dazzles with its proportions, its light, its capitals and its three eardrums.

Also worth seeing are the Jules-Roy house, the Visitor's house, the Viollet-le-Duc museum, the Zervos museum – Romain Rolland house.
