The gate, Porte de Nizy, is all that remains of Oingt's formidable fortress and is the entry point into the village, with its pedestrian streets and the restored 16C Maison Commune. Numerous arts and crafts studios accentuate the charm (ceramics, weaving etc). Narrow streets with comical names (Trayne Cul, Tire Laine) and lined with lovely houses lead to the church, perched up high, formerly the castle chapel (14C).
