  • For those who love literature, be sure to stop by and look for the ruins of the old convent of the Franciscans, called "cordeliers". In its cloister is buried the Muse of Petrarch, Laura de Noves, the wife of Count Hugues de Sade (Yes, ancestor of the infamous Marquis). There is no visible access to visitation. The street itself has several bars and a story linked to professionals. There is still water wheels attached to them.
