Things to see and do

Built in the early 1940s, the chapel of Our Lady of Eygurande, also known as the Virgin and Child, is still the object of a pilgrimage every first Sunday in September. Not far away, it is possible to admire the fountain of devotion to the Virgin. Covered by an old millstone and closed by a wooden leaf, it was used for devotion in the first half of the 18th century. Like the chapel, it is an important place of pilgrimage to the Virgin.
