La maison romane
(La plus ancienne du village)
Construite probablement au XIIe siècle, elle a pu être la demeure d’un chanoine (ancienne rue de Chapitre). Au dessus du portall, l’inscription PAX DOMUI...M...AT, sûrement inspirée de l’évangile de Luc, renvoie à sa bénédiction.

English translation:
The Romanesque House
(The oldest house in the town)
Probably built in the 12th century, it may have been the house of a canon (on the former street of Chapitre). Above the portal, the inscription PAX DOMUI ... M. .. AT, was surely inspired by the Gospel of Luke, referring to his blessing.
