St Robert, the first abbot of La Chaise-Dieu, chose this site on the Sénouire river to found an abbey in the 11C. It is a particularly charming small town, where time seems to stand still, whose wooden-balconied houses and the east side of the church are reflected in the clear water of a small river. The conventual buildings feature beautiful Romanesque cloisters and the former farmer-baker's house is now a museum of folk arts and traditions.
