This former quarry closed in the 1960s. Now converted into a theatre, it is a lovely setting for a whole range of activities, from cattle shows to concerts. It's the main venue of the annual jazz festival, too.
Guarded by the Chapelle St-Joseph is the venerable Miraculous Oak. Like the tower, it is a place of local legend. Apparently, if women rub their bottoms against it on St Joseph's day, they will be married within a year!
The St-Eutrope Tower in the centre of the village is all that remains of a fourteenth-century church. Inside are coats of arms of local families.
St Eutrope was a third-century bishop with miraculous powers, alleged to have affected the earth of the tower itself. According to legend, it has curative properties: if you take a handful, apply it to an injury or a sick person, then return it to the place it was taken from, the malady may be cured.
Choose from three bars, the first just by the chapel and the miraculous oak in the hamlet of St Joseph. If you want a meal as well as a drink, try the Auberge de la Vieille Tour, while the Nargile often has live music.
Langourla is well-provided with three shops. In the centre of the village are a general store and a bakery, while the bar at the hamlet of St Joseph also has a general store.
Other facilities in the village centre include a post office and a library, either side of the Mairie.
