The remains of the clock tower of the Collegial Church of Saint Jean-Baptiste, this clock tower was built below the church so as not disturb the lord's view from the terrace of his château.

All that remains of the imposing collegial church opened in 1642 is a wall face and the mark sunk into the rock. The square is located on the site of the large staircase which led to the château from the town below.
A silk-screened stone enables you to visualise the château as it was in the 17th century.
