Medieval site & fortified chapel

Opening hours: Du 01/01 au 31/12

Overlooking the village, the medieval site was built by the monks of the Cruas abbey in the middle ages as a refuge in case of flooding and wars. The fortified chapel in the 14th century looks like a castle, but was for the worship.

More information

The large Romanesque chapel from the 12th century was fortified with the construction of angles’ turrets, brattices and machicolation crowned with battlements, in the 14th century. Near the Bellevue place and the ramparts, climb the square tower to enjoy a beautiful view.
