More than 400 people live in this fortified town. This old village hosts about 15 artists and became an “Artists village” (Label issued in 2013). 7 of them stay in Marols all year long. Some buildings are to be mentioned: the Church Saint Pierre, the Fortified Door, the ramparts as well as the chapel Saint Roch.
Marols is a famous arrival step of Saint Jacques of Compostela, from Montbrison. Hiking tracks go all around and from this beautiful Village of Character. Saint Jacques of Compostela is not dissociable from this Village of Character in Forez. A walking tour is available departing from the Inn, on the traces of pilgrims ( itinerary here at the link ‘Marols’ on this page : https://www.loiretourisme.com/fr/villages-de-caractere ).
