Both sides of Saint-Sorlin, "City" and the village of Collonges, once clearly separated, are now joined by new constructions. The "City" is essentially the rise of the church and the adjacent streets, lined with old houses and remains of fortifications. Two types of houses are included: the type Bugey with a saltbox roof, going far beyond the facade, and the type Savoy (cottage type) with a gable roof framing a gable. Whether of one kind or another, these houses have a common point, climbing stairs outside because the house is upstairs. On the ground floor houses the cellar and stable. The canopy is home to vast reserves of timber and crops.

The noble families of Saint-Sorlin were at the beginning of military nobility, and many lords, time function completed, settled in Saint-Sorlin. Become useless in peacetime, the aristocracy was replaced gradually by a bourgeoisie de robe (judges, lawyers, prosecutors, curial), some families were ennobled for their turn. When the court of Saint-Sorlin was transferred to Saint-Rambert (1607) and although the "lawyers" still live Saint-Sorlin, the decline of the village began.


A note in the village, the fresco of St. Christopher, the Place de la Halle, with the old measurement of Saint Sorlin, the castle entrance Molard, taking a steep slope, the washing of Arémont and continuing the climb towards the church, the great so-called "small Bessey" home. Collonges at the northern end of the town contains the remains of the venerable "Tour de la Fontaine" a wash where the water flowed at all times but that was decorated in the early 19th century by a colonnade, and the house so-called "Prost Cuchet" Renaissance.

The four washing the village, including the Collonges Historical Monument.
