A pedestrian city, the city of Neufchâteau is full of architectural and historical treasures. Classified as the premier heritage site in the Vosges, the town draws part of its wealth from the buildings built between the 16th and 18th centuries and its two churches. That of Saint-Christophe is home to a masterpiece that is unique in Europe: the Wiriot chapel with its vaulting, with descending keystones. The current Le Scala cinema has the particularity of being located in the wing of a former monastery, transformed into an Italian-style theater.
