Although unspoilt nature is the real star, a little visit to the village will not disappoint you :a clean and tidy square with its wooden benches, under the shade of lime trees, a pretty fountain and a fine old church with a wall-belfry, some smart houses with blue shutters, a barn full of wood for the winter, a villa plus swimming pool, and finally, to bring the show to an end, two remnants of Gigors' past, not to be missed: a plaster millstone, such as were made as early as the Roman era, and a fountain in five sections, carved out of stone and dated 1829.

It is said the villagers bought this fountain from the local Lord by paying for it with its weight in wheat!
