Things to see and do

Excursion to St. Paul's Chapel: From the village square, pass the bridge and turn right, it takes a good half hour to walk to the chapel of St. Paul, 700 m above sea level. The path becomes steeper towards the end. We discovered the chapel beside the annex. In it, the ground, a black stone, which according to legend was known to treat seizures. He who suffered was sleeping over. From this location, beautiful view Arnave.
