Francheville

Set back from the main road coming from Beaumont, the village of Francheville culminates at an altitude of 580 metres and is dominated by the Saint-Félix church built in the 18th century. Above the church's portal are a coat of arms and a chronogram showing the year 1742.

The chronogram is an inscription in which certain letters correspond to Roman numerals which, when added together, give the founding date of the building.
