The Château district, Donzenac, a former fortified village, still retains its medieval appearance with its high walls, narrow, winding lanes that all return to the Church district.
The village of Travassac, located 3km above the town, is one of the most important hamlets of the commune. It is a typical village once inhabited by slate workers who worked in the quarry.
This hamlet is home to a vertically operated former open slate quarry. This unique site in Europe is now open to the public.
