The capital Champorcher Castle or Chateau, is a town of feudal origin and is set around the local lords' castle, destroyed in 1212, which today is visible only a crenellated tower. On the ruins of the castle, around 1400, it was built the church of St. Nicholas, in which houses valuable wooden altars elaborately adorned in gold. Near the church is a small panoramic viewpoint overlooking the waterfalls that the river forms when flowing into the horrible Ayasse below.
