    Best known for the footprints of the "Grallator" dinosaurs of its nickname, the houses of the village are aligned on a rocky outcrop and dominate the Tarnon valley. The residences were staged between the castle and the church. This one was on the "Castellas" at the location of the footprints. Mentioned from the beginning of the 12th century, it was attached to the barony of Florac. It was destroyed in the 17th century. Parts of the building were salvaged and recycled into houses. We find, here and there in the village, signs proving that there was indeed a castle: a lintel bears the coat of arms of the castle. From the "Castellas", in addition to the footprints, there is a magnificent panorama of the Tarnon valley and the Causse Méjean. Several panels give information on the site.
