Bordered by the Soulège and the Durèze, you can still see mills including the Courret paddle mill and that of Rosière, both dating from the XNUMXth century.

The latter still bears an inscription engraved on a lintel “Anne de Rabar built this mill in the year 1729. Widow of Jean-Augustin de Ségur, lord of the Franks”.

In the center of the town, the Notre-Dame church proudly stands. Built in the XNUMXth century, it consists of a paneled Romanesque nave, leading to the choir and the sanctuary from the same period; an decorated cornice is supported by modillions representing barrels, pigs' heads, human heads, entwined figures, or placed head to tail.

The building is listed in the inventory of Historic Monuments by decree of November 21, 1925.

There are also, scattered throughout the commune, several remarkable buildings such as the Pailhas castle, the Labatut castle, former property of the lords of Duras and in which several scenes from “Blue Helmet” the film by Gérard Jugnot were filmed, the Blanchet castle, or the noble house of Vigouroux whose constructions date back to the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries.

The local economy is essentially wine-producing. The vineyard covers approximately 900 hectares. Its annual production is around 50 hectoliters across all appellations: Bordeaux, Bordeaux-Supérieur and Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux.

Some plum orchards, as well as cattle and dairy farms, complement the local economy.
