The village has traditional stone buildings with houses covered with orange tiles. Above it rises the Roure Castle, a fortress built in the fourteenth century, which defended the natural crossing of Ardechce in the form of the Pont d'Arc rock bridge. Around the castle there were silkworm farms in the past, and today there is a silk museum and you can watch the reconstruction of the breeding.
