A small medieval village in the Ennuyé valley, Sainte-Jalle was home to Faulque Thollon-de-Sainte-Jalle, one of the most prominent military commanders in the French wars of religion. It was also
the capital of the thriving local area, known as 'le Grenier des Baronnies' and for many centuries was a major trading venue. Nowadays it is renowned for its updated Foire de la Saint-Barthélémy,
which is held here every third Saturday in August.
What to see, what to visit: the ruins of the castle, with its square dungeon, dating from the twelfth or thirteenth century; the church Notre-Dame de Beauver (or Bauvoir), from the thirteenth century
