Seven castles punctuate the sunny side of the village. The town hall and the castle of Longpra can be visited. The other castles are private properties: they can be admired in passing.

In order, you will follow the Lambertière with its pointed towers, Longpra classified as a historical monument and its water ditches, the Etergne under its castle mound. Returning to the village you will find La Rochette and its 4 corner towers, Clermont-Tonnerre in neo-renaissance style, the Château de Cabarot, a former 16th century monastery. Enjoy the way up and down to the Town Hall, former castle of Montcla.
