Places of interest

  • The 17th/18th-century château. Built by François Trudaine as part of a great estate sold to the nation in 1795. Much of the grounds still exist. The entrance and the ground-floor were severely damaged in a fire in 1946. Constructed in red brick and sandstone on a rectangular plan, it has a mansard style roof. The water feature is in its original shape. The château and its domain constitute an interesting example of châteaux of the late 17th century in the region.
  • The church
