The main historical feature is the Château of the Counts of Foix, which overlooks the old part of the town, with winding streets and old houses (illustration, right). It crowns an isolated rock with its three towers of the 12th, 14th and 15th centuries. The chief church, a Gothic building of the 14th century, is consecrated to St Volusien, an archbishop of Tours in the 5th century.
