But this "sporty" village also has other more surprising cultural assets: wall paintings dating from the 15th century on the wall of Saint-Vincent chapel, a medieval chapel dedicated to Saint-Romain (12th century) now used as a museum of rural life in olden times, Saint-Roch chapel (17th century) presenting an exhibition on the theme of "the plague and the penitents "...ais ce village "sportif" possède aussi des atouts culturels plus étonnants : peintures murales datant du 15ème siècle sur la façade de la chapelle Saint-Vincent, chapelle médiévale Saint-Romain (12ème siècle) servant de musée de la vie rurale d'autrefois, chapelle Saint-Roch (17ème siècle) présentant une exposition sur le thème de "la peste et les pénitents"...
