Several chalets (some of them have been converted into small restaurants) can be found on Teysachaux's slopes. They have been built during the 18th and 19th century, showing the evidence of a progressive expansion of farming (mainly milk and cheese) towards higher meadows.
In 1870, on the foothills of the west side of Teysachaux, a 2-meters long fossilised ichthyosaurus has been discovered. It dates from the Jurassic period (175 to 183 million years), when dinosaurs walked the Earth. This fossil is now part of the permanent exhibition at the Museum of Natural History of Fribourg
