There Are 12C Buildings In The Adjacent...
Immediately to the west of the church is a 12C Romanesque building of several stories in height that is believed to have been the place where Guy Foulques (originally Guido Fulconi) later to be Clement IV (in 1265) was born. We did not take other pictures in town.
Behind the Church Are 12C Original...
Behind the rebuilt 17C nave are the basal pillar fragments and pieces of the original choir and part of a north stairs. There are a couple of sarcophagi from an earlier period as well and some fragments of even earlier work.Related to:

Go Down To The Crypt
The crypt is a large single chamber 50 by 25 meters with an ogival vaulting and a good major area. It has been some reconstructed.
Le Cours: A really nice dinner
Quite a large restaurant for such a small and sleepy town. Nice dining rooms and a fine terrace. It was the restaurant of our hotel.
Favorite Dish: There was a choice of 4 different menues. Our choice was the Menu du Terroir for approx. 17 EUR per person. There were very nice local dishes to choose for each course. All was really delicious and worth the money.
