A superb medieval church dating from the 5th century, with a crypt that contains several sarcophagus. It was originally a powerful abbey ruled by Abbot John Cassian, whose influence spread to Spain and Italy. Only the abbatial church and the crypts remain today.

Every year in March a procession pays homage to the Virgin Mary, and biscuits known as navettes (small boats) are cooked.
