The Rocher de Sampzon

Many places to see and visit
The bastide town of Sampzon, built in the 12th century, stands out for its three large towers and beautiful old stone ramparts. Although it’s not open to visitors, you can still admire its architecture from every angle.
But one of the best-preserved buildings is certainly the Church of Saint Martin, built in the 11th century in Romanesque style. Partially destroyed, then renovated and modified throughout its history, this chapel alone symbolizes the cultural richness of the village of Sampzon!
