Things to see and do

The massive façade of the church of St. Martin was built in Flint, materials abundant on nearby beaches Cayolaises during construction in the 12th century. Above the arched portal in sandstone, stands a large square tower and short. This tower was added after the fact, to the primitive portal tuff. When the armistice of 1918, we rang the bell so hard that original 1832 was damaged and replaced in 1920.

Until 1880 there were at least a dozen mills Arrest that surrounded the village. These windmills were usually covered with wooden boards at the base of the roof. They had two vocations, grind grain cereals or oil production including rapeseed. At one time, the redundant mills involved a fierce competition among millers. They could not afford to wait that brings them grain. It was on the contrary they go look for themselves, sleigh, in the village or neighboring villages.

The circuit rider and marked the Tit passes through the center of the village. This circuit 28 km (about 3:30), accessible to families can go inland to the lush shores of the Bay of the Somme!
