This particularity creates a beautiful checkerboard effect throughout the village. The black basalt stones is why the town’s saint is named, St. Jean the Black.

The pathways of the village surrounding the church were once part of its fortification which have been referred to as early as 1137.

The typical cobblestone roads and voulted archways at times have the old doors attached to them and are pointed out with a little plaque.
