Saint Orso Collegiate
Built on an early Christian basilica, Saint Orso collegiate church (named after an Irish monk who came to evangelise the valley in the 11C) has retained its beautiful sculpted wooden stalls from the 15C and a Baroque rood screen. Next to the crypt (11C) there is an entrance to a charming little Romanesque cloister with historiated capitals illustrating biblical or profane scenes. The priory is a Renaissance building with elegant windows.
