    What is left of the massive old (1602) defensive walls lead from the Porte de Bretagne and provide fine views. They extend primarily in a southern direction.

    The 16C Gothic church of St.-Jean-Baptiste is the only church in town which survived WW I after the German bombing and 3 year occupation. Its outside walls are somewhat scarred but its interior is intact

    The guide book said this little town had an interesting church. So we stopped and looked at it as we went by. Its notable feature is a carved tympanum of the 13C showing the Nativity on the left and the Flight Into Egypt on the right. How did such fine earlt work get in such an out-of-the-way place?
