12 century commandry, built by the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, now the Order of Malta. To begin with it was a square corps de logis flanked by four round towers - part housed a old people and perpetuated its Hospitaller vocation. The church was inserted into the building of which it forms the south west front: the 12th century choir has a rectangular chevet with an interior vaulted apse (uncommon in Rourgue and unique in the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem). The octagonal bell-tower dates to 1848 and possesses a wooden spiral staircase. An exhibition with video shows the history of the Hospitaller is presented in a magnificent room with vaulted ceiling that was the water tank for the commandry.
