The village welcomes you in a green setting where three streams, the three Dazes, come together at its feet. Continue on your way to Conques, a major stop on the Compostela Way!

Since 1998, the abbey of Conques and the bridge over the Dourdou river called "pont des pèlerins" or "pont Romain" are registered on the list of the world heritage of the UNESCO under the title of the roads of Compostelle in France.
