  • This walk through undulating country beside streams and along hilltop ridges will give you sweeping views across the Ségala. The inhabitants of the village had an insoluble problem : where should they build the church ? Finally, the exasperated master mason threw his hammer into the air : "The church will be built wherever it falls !" A dove caught it in flight and then dropped it, so the church was built where it fell. Heaven had given the answer. The image of a dove (colombe in French) has often been portrayed in the village : it appears, carrying an olive branch, in the stained-glass windows of the church, and also on the corners of the recently-restored bell-tower's roof.
