Enjoying a terroir and a climate perfectly suited to the vines, many wine estates welcome you for a cellar visit or a tasting of AOC Saint Chinian wines.

Lovers of beautiful stones, you will enjoy strolling through its streets with brown-red stone houses, the color due to bauxite. Passage required by the XNUMXth century church, the fountain and the wash house.

On the heights of the hamlet Combejean, the Bosque and the Priou are suitable for hikes walking, discovering the Sainte-Suzanne chapel.
