Population Development


The city center will be formed by the Saint-André church and the castle.

The castle is still inhabited and comes mostly from the fourteenth century, with some components made of even older time.

The parish church of Saint- André is of Roman origin and was partially destroyed during the Wars of Religion. It was erected with ruin material and the still standing walls again, but with a modified floor plan. Some remains of the old Romanesque building were installed in the old rectory, as it seems to be with the two fluted columns and processed into a foliage capitals of the case.

Before the small town hall there is a drinking fountain.
