Market of the region

Dating from the 14th century, the church of Pomas is placed under the invocation of Saint Julian and Saint Basilis, martyrs honoured since the Paleochristian era. Its architecture is in the Southern Gothic style. Its nave is unique with four bays, in the shape of a Latin cross. On its Maître Hôtel you can admire a funerary cross from the 16th century, classified as a Historical Monument.
