Hiking or biking through this town and the surrounding countryside is a richly rewarding experience. The trails lead through lush forests of chestnut and oak trees and information about the various available trails as well as guides can be sought from the tourism office. Among the fascinating monuments visitors will encounter as they walk through the town is the Church of Saint Jacques le Majeur.
