The old ramparts extend to the west of La Conche at the Porte de la Gargoyle, the old city gate.
The old castle of Blains, now the town hall, houses some treasures, visible during heritage days.

In the heart of a forest where firs and hardwoods rub shoulders with boxwood in the undergrowth,
the paths will lead you to the different hamlets with their houses
traditional stone and small heritage. At the top of the hills, grandiose panoramas over the plain of the Ain are revealed…

At the bend of a path on the heights of Merland, a surprising encounter
awaits you: the Highland Cattle, Scottish cows with long brown hair, raised in the open air. Fishing enthusiasts can put their rods on one of the two equipped lakes, Lac du Vorgey and Lac de Longeville, ideal for discovering canoeing and kayaking.
