Priory St Ortaire
Hamlet which owes its reputation to the hermit St. Ortaire (who evangelised the region towards)
the 6th century) and the ritual of pebbles healers.
St. Ortaire had fame to perform miraculous cures. The faithful
who went to the Chapel, put on the trees surrounding the sanctuary
a stone at height of evil or pain to heal. The volume of the stone was
in relation to the severity of the disease. When the rock fell in a way
natural, the patient was cured. You can visit two chapels: Chapel
the servants of the 20th century (stained glass windows and altar made by Bernard Chardon) and the
St. Ortaire and Sainte Radegonde's 18th century chapel (private).
Possibility of guided tours some Wednesdays, see program.
