Probably worst art museum ever seen. 500 square meters used to show 20 paintings of not known latvian (not even lithuanian) artists. Not children friendly, if you are disabled no chance to see anything. Two small rooms upstairs for some wooden lithuanian crosses and Jesuses and metall works, but on the top floor, where you can get only small stairs. Staff not friendly. For a building history only one room reserved, everything you can get on wikipedia, wouldn't be surprised if they printed it from wiki. Not worth even a penny. Park nice, but if its wett, cant walk with a buggy, many locals walk dogs and dont collect their leftovers. Very good looking building, but very sad exhibition. They probably just have nothing to show.

Historic Village of Olargues

Olargues is a good example of a French medieval town and rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It was occupied by the Romans, the Vandals and the Visigoths. At the end of the 11th century the Jaur valley came under the authority of the Château of the Viscount of Minerve. The following centuries saw a succession of wars and epidemics, and it was not until the 18th century that Olargues became re-established. This was due to the prosperity of local agriculture and artisanal industry.

The Pont du Diable, 'Devil's Bridge', is said to date back to 1202 and is reputed to be the scene of transactions between the people of Olargues and the devil. The old village is clustered around the belltower, which was formerly the main tower of the castle (Romanesque construction). The old shops have marble frontages and overhanging upper storeys. A museum of popular traditions and art is to be found in the stairs of the Commanderie.
