Although many differents styles, from Romanesque to Renaissance, without hesitation to go and see the Saint-Aignan’s church.

It was partially destroyed the 100 years war and rebuilt mostly between the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century. The choir, its right side aisle and the bell tower are from 13th century. The left side aisle of the choir, the nave with its aisles are from the 15th century ; two interesting Romanesque pillars can be admired there. The portal of the south transept, in pure Renaissance style, is remarkable.

Gilt-wood statues of St Vincent and St Eloi from the 12th century and stained-glass windows from the 19th and 20th centuries, inside church. Open every day. The medieval bridge "Pont aux Soeurs" crosses the river “Cheuille” which flows past the two remaining towers of the original ramparts.

A former leper-house, in a locality called "Le Portail", now transformed into a house.

Henri II windows in the “Rue du 14 Juillet”.

“Grès de Bonny”: A place where you will find numerous stone-ware objects, both practical and decorative, all hand-made using traditional methods
