Thanks to volunteers the ASFVL is able to offer guided tours of the old town and guided visits to the chapels of Saint Ferréol with its small museum of sacred art and Notre-Dame de Ben-Va (a classified Historical Monument). The tours are usually in French, but English-language tours can be arranged.

During July and August there are regular visits (see below). At other times they can be booked through the ASFVL or the Tourist Office at a cost of 5€ per person, 8€ for a family, free for under 18s. Groups: 3€ per person.
