Fodor's Review

Next to the Museum of Archeology in the Vieille Ville (Old Town), the 12th-century Église San Rafeu (also known as St-Pierre-des-Templiers) is a miniature-scale Romanesque church. It was recently discovered that its foundations lie on top of two other churches dating back to the Carolingian era. Climb up the 129 steps of the 13th-century bell tower, the Tour San Rafeu, for its 360-degree panoramic views, and snap away.
