Officially listed as one of "Les Plus Beaux Villages de France", it has welcomed pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain, for over 1000 years.

Visitors and tourists can enjoy strolling through the narrow streets, the many specialist shops, and then settling down in the village square, Place Trarieux, at one of the cafes or restaurants, wonderfully shaded by ancient lime trees.
