Sites of interest

Part of the town's fortifications remain, and two of the four towers and three of the seven city doors are still in place. The old Saint-Sulpitius church was built in the 11th century on the remains of an older church from the 9th century. A new Saint-Sulpitius church was built next to it and finished in 1659, while the old church became the presbytery. Both were hit by lightning in June 1891 and suffered a serious fire. They have since been repaired.
