Visitors to the old quarter, set next to the cliff, can see houses of the l6th and 17th centuries, stone or wrought iron decorations and narrow streets, all witnesses to the long and interesting past of Cotignac.

There are many fountains, some quite curious looking, that bubble with cool clear water.

The "Cours" (court), sheltered from the heat by plane trees and cooled by the everflowing fountain is a lively place full of restaurants, cafés and shops.
