Firstly, the sacred architecture is very present in the village and its surroundings. Thus they have no fewer than a dozen chapels including a majestic church, the Church of St. Pons, enthroned at the top of the village. The church of 1668, a blend of several styles (classical portal, carved door, cruciform plan unique in the valley Vésubie) presents a specific architecture (façade relatively low, broad and squat ...) which was designed to withstand the shaking of earthquakes. It shows traces of an older building. Inside you can admire the performances of the 17th century (St. Anthony of Padua receiving the child and the Glorification of the Holy Sacrament), a painting of the Virgin of Mercy, the magnificent altar of the Rosary from the eighteenth, its frieze little picture that tells the 15 mysteries of the life of Christ, the holy altar Pons (Lantosque boss) and that of St. Sulpice, whose relics Lantosque given by the Pope himself is the sign of the influence and power elites local time ...

Other monuments show the pervasiveness of the Church Lantosque and its environs in the 17th century, such as the Chapel of St. Claire (fifteenth century), the Saint Sebastian Church Our Lady of Angels Pélasque, church Saint Arnoux Loda, the remains of the castle from the 13th of Loda.

In addition, the village is full of historical and cultural references. As evidenced by the loggias of the 18th century, the fountain of the Town Hall Square (1886), the War Memorial (in front of the church of Saint Pons) reminding us of the massacres of the war of 14-18, Fort Gordolon ( remnant of the Maginot Line is part of the defense lines through the common and Lantosque Roquebillière), or the Shrine of Our Lady of Balma downstream village (one example of cave shrine Vésubie who hosted an annual procession of the penitents followed by the entire population).

More recently, the bridge Martinet, whose name comes from an old mill located on the right bank where weavers, blacksmiths, locksmiths were working in craft, using water power. This bridge allowed the train first, then the tram until 1926. It was rebuilt in 1932 and 1999. Other bridges as the carrier deck, spanning the Riou and gorges, was the crossing point of the north-south traffic. Hugging the Riou can see an ancient water mill used to grind grain.

Currently, the multipurpose hall hosts numerous events and cultural activities (theater, choir, exhibitions ...) and sports (dance, gymnastics, judo, step, yoga ...). It is equipped with modern equipment and can accommodate over 500 people for conferences or conventions.

In a different register, the Laune Elephant or via ferrata Lantosque canyons are places to go popular with tourists as inhabitants.
