    The lower town is on both sides of the Ornain river. The church on the south bank in the lower town is the church of St. Antoine built in the 14-15C. The church has a fine wooden crossing tower and beside an old simple west end there is at its south west edge a primitive statue to a bishop of an earlier chapel.

    Place St. Pierre widens before the Church St.-Etienne at its southern end. To its right is the Rue des Ducs de Bar. The largest building immediate on the right is the Hotel de Florainville, today the palais de Justice. The facade is 16C Renaissance with wrought iron-added to the balcony in the 18C.Two doors further south is a fine wood faced building that is earlier and two doors further on is a classic style 17C facaded building with frontons that is today the tribunal d'instance. Other old buildings are also to be see.

    Just north of the Pl. St.-Pierre stands the ancient Tour de L'Horloge which looks down on the steep descent to the lower city, which is a remainder from the old ducal chateau. Nearby is a view looking at the lower city and further along the upper town is the Chapel of St. Pierre which has a Renaissance entrance . Its east end is topped by a fine statue ofSte.-Mary.
