A former "sauveté" that builds the identity of the Ségala...
To enter this town founded by Cistercian monks during the 12th century, use the Englishmen's Door, classified as an historical monument. Visit Saint-Martin Church with its magnificent organ and, once arrived in rue du Four, look up to admire the half-timbered houses.
What is a “sauveté”? In short: a place where you are safe (“sauf” in French)!
It was a village or a market town built on seigneurial lands, around a church and its priory. Its territorial boundaries were shown thanks to stone crosses. The inhabitants benefited from a spiritual protection and a plot on which they could build freely their homes. They cultivated gardens and fields that were monks' properties almost always.
