In the high Fenouilledes, where the forest of Boucheville contributes to the beauty of the landscape, lies the pretty village of Vira. It is home to flora and fauna of great diversity, and offers many hiking trails in the forest. The village dates back to the middle ages. The church dates back to the eleventh century, it was built in the Roman style, and later restored in the fourteenth century.
