The Skite Sainte Foy is an Orthodox monastery. It overlooks the Vallée Longue and looks like a fortified schist stone farmhouse with slate roofs and openings onto an interior courtyard, from which a spring springs. Built on the rock, in the middle of a three-hectare terraced property, the skite has Celtic remains (cupule), a signal tower from the 11th century, buildings of a former Benedictine priory from the 16th century. The chapel is decorated with frescoes with contemporary stained glass windows, a mosaic. The garden is adorned with numerous sculptures and the paths have a large-format photo exhibition showing the same place at different times of the year. The monks practice organic farming. Numerous restorations bear witness to the respect for the landscape and the tradition of Cévennes buildings. The skite takes part in the Temps des Jardins and the European Heritage Days.
