We enter through the door Pavé and we go up through alleys and stone stairs to the top, the site of the castle built around 1201 by the Poitiers, counts of Valentinois. Restored in the Renaissance, it served as a prison in 1796, then was auctioned and dismantled. Its stones were used to build the beautiful church built in 1838 and later for the elevation of the tower that still stands at the top of the village.
