Places of interest

The church of Notre Dame de l'Assomption, built at the top of a small hill, is in the Gothic style and dates from the fifteenth century. On a wall inside there’s a plaque dedicated to Nicolas du Moncel, seigneur of Vascongnes, who died in 1487. Like all churches dedicated to the Virgin, it is built with a noticeably narrow transept.
