The Eglise Notre Dame is a magnificent Gothic church begun in the 15th century. The portico, added in the 16th century, has ornate decorations that are reminiscent of the lace that was once central to the town's economy. The Musee des Beaux-Arts et de la Dentelle has exhibitions focusing on the history and tradition of lace making. The Chateau des Ducs is an impressive 14th century castle and, although providing accommodations, very few visitors are tempted to spend the night, as it is also the town's prison.
