The castle, a 12-century chateau-fort is barely visible from outside the village, or inside, is private and non-visitable, but has an interesting history.

The few village streets are not particularly interesting to explore and there are no squares to visit.


La Bastide-d'Engras has an old covered lavoir (washhouse), just a short walk south from the center, on Rue du Lavoir. It faces southwest so the best time to see it is with the afternoon sun.


A very picturesque old chapel, partially in ruins, sits out in the woods 700 m from the eastern end of the village. It's a 10-15 minute hike out on a pretty trail through the woods to the chapel. The ruins include a tall, intact bell tower in the original stone and a partially restored nave and rounded apse. Behind the chapel is an ancient graveyard, with old, grey headstones from the end of the 19th century.
