  • The first Templar site I have visited. One of the most authentic. No overrated shops or vendors in search of naïve tourists with deep pockets, no restaurants either. Just a site to visit, to discover quietly, calmly, without haste, without pressure, without discomfort, without interference to find history exciting, mysterious, legendary of the Knights Templar, these fighters monks at the time of the Crusades. Audio-guide with explanations targeted on the village and a few more general topics on history. Paradoxically, what I remember from this visit, it is not visiting the site itself. It is an exhibition of paintings in one of the rooms. Local artists, each with their style and on very different themes. I'd perhaps rather paintings on landscapes and villages of the Larzac. Nonetheless, I wasn't expecting to see an exhibition like this. This is a good initiative. A hyphen between the culture of yesterday and today's culture. And especially, to force them to buy. Just outside this room, a point of view in height which remains a bulwark on the tops of the Larzac in the distance. So a good visit I recommend to start the tourist route of the Templars: authentic, relaxing and a little surprising. Don't delay!

  • Who could believe that houses are hidden inside this small fortification? We walk in the street. It passes under a vaulted Street. We visit the Church, the ramparts and the apartments of the Abbess.

  • Saint John of Alcas, one of the five sites of the circuit of the Larzac Templar and hospital, built in the 15th century, a fort of women!  Small medieval jewel with its four corner towers surround two unique parallel-lined streets to House almost identical. Enter and be amazed.
