From the old medieval fortress, renovated between 1450 and 1470 per Jean de Derval remains significant vestiges. It counted 6 turns, a châtelet of entry with a drawbridge and the lanlord home. The oldest part is consisted the chorus of the vault castrale of Roman style (XIIIe). Four turns are still drawn up: the keep (XIIIe - beginning of XVe century) independent of the castle, high of 38 meters; the tower of the Clock (XIVe-XVe) was used as belfry during Ancien Régime; the turns of Guet and the Cardinal (XVe) were undoubtedly built by Jean de Derval and preserved their covered way on machicolation.
