A beautiful 14 century church, classed as an historic monument is in the centre of the village and visitors can also enjoy mini-excursions on the Canal, viewing the magnificent triple locks, passing over the Vauban aqueduct, turning at the "Pont de la Rode"(the bridge like a wheel) and winding back through flourishing vegetable gardens created by local people.
