Make a stop in the pretty little village


The village still retains the medieval center, the "Fort", still apparent in what remains of the village fortification. In front of the parish church of Saint Michael an arched doorway with it's key stones still remains of this polygonal 'enceinte'. In the slope of the defensive wall lies an iron cross forged in 1855. It is dedicated to the "outrages" performed upon Christ  and so bears the instruments of his torture; the spear, pliers... 

Walking through the neat little roads you will find the fountain of Duilhac wich is called the "Fontaine des Amours" and has been recently adorned with a verse of Ronsard : "Quiconque en boira qu'amoureux il devienne", "He who will drink, in love he will fall".

The old olive oil mill next to the fountain now converted into a restaurant, stopped working in 1921.
