The center of town is the Carrefour de la Poste, with terrace cafés, restaurants and the normal village shops. The old village center is also quite interesting for wandering and discovering ancient doorways, pretty little houses, and frequent descriptive panels describing the locals (in multi languages).

A walk out to the northwest part of town takes you to the 14th-century Tours des Abbes and the very long, 19th-century lavoir.
