    - The Republican monument, built in 1889, is a symbol of La Roche-de-Mûrs’s history and reminds the Republican concepts of freedom, equality and fraternity, where 600 Republicans died, some by throwing themselves down the cliff, during the battle “contre les Blancs”, the 26th of July 1793.
    - The blockhouse built during winter 1942-1943 was the centre of the system implemented in Érigné by the Kriegsmarine based in the château de Pignerolles in Saint-Barthélémy-d’Anjou.
