The town is surrounded by a double line of ramparts. The first, the most ancient, protected the priory, the church and the fort, the second established in the XVth century, encircled the commercial part. Still today, its maze of narrow cobbled streets are a must to explore, and makes Saint-Benoît-du-Sault a beautiful medieval town.
Of architectural significance:
On the 15th August each year, there is a fete and very large and magnificent fireworks display which is a must-see for anyone in the area. Each month there is also a market in the town square.
