    The Le Castellet site, a small rocky plateau, was occupied by an oppidum in the 4th century BC. It was abandoned two centuries later, but redeveloped in the 12th century. Within the château walls was a high tower, which no longer exists, as well as a church dedicated to Saint Mary. Only the apse remains standing: it is semi-domed and supported by eight ribs resting on corbels. These remains are currently located on the land of a private Mas and are therefore inaccessible to the public.

    This fortress church, built in the 9th and 11th centuries on an old Gallo-Roman sanctuary, replaced an oratory that, according to legend, was erected by the Saints. This site was fortified in order to withstand attacks by the Saracens. Human figures can be seem emerging from the capitals decorated with plant motifs. The crypt (1448) houses Sarah, patron saint of Gypsies, covered with robes and coats. The boat of the Saints Marys is in the left alley of the church. The 4th BC century pagan altar in the crypt is also remarkable.

    The former private mansion of the Gras de Preigne family has housed the Court House since 1858. Constructed in the Renaissance style in the early 17th century, it was redeveloped slightly later 'in the French style' or 'in the Parisian style', with U-shaped main buildings built around a main courtyard (Place du Bâtonnier Louis Gonthier). Behind this, the current entrance to the Court House overlooking the Place du Docteur Braye has a 1620s Mannerist-style façade.

    (formerly Hôtel du Roure) This mansion, built in the same style as the Parisian mansions of the time, has façades on which it is still possible to see all the particularly sophisticated original decoration, as well as most of its interior layout. From the street, visitors can admire the porch bearing the coat of arms of the Le Roure family, the three wings surrounding the courtyard, the décor of supporting wall ties on the ground floor and the elegance of the large windows.

    Visitors are often surprised by the imposing size and impressive Classical façade of this building, which was constructed in 1754. The pulpit jutting out from the pillar, the walnut woodwork of the ambulatory and the 19th century marble altar are all remarkable features which justify the Church's classification as a Regional Historic Monument.
