BRISSAC

The Chapel was first mentioned in 1080. Overlooking the Herault river, in a wild setting, it forms a beautiful whole along with the priory's vestiges and a construction that probably served as a welcome place for the pilgrims. Guided tours are possible all year long on request.

BRISSAC

Built in the Middle Ages, it steps over the Herault river and it allowed the pilgrims to continue their journey towards Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, which is a step on the Way of Saint James. Built as a humpback bridge, it still has three of its five original archs. Guided tours are possible all year long on request.

LAROQUE

Restored in 2005, the chapel was built at the beginning of the Romanesque art period. The part of the chapel which is located in the castle is an aileless church that still has its original altar (XIIe c), and the sacristy is a tower made for military defense (XIIIe c).
