Saint Symphorien le Château is mostly a residential town. Dating back to the 11th century, the Esclimont Castle rests on a rich, historical past. A number of wars led to its destruction, but it was then rebuilt in 1543. Over the course of the centuries, it underwent various transformations, in particular in the 18th and the 19th centuries when it has been restored in the Renaissance style. In 1980, the Castle was transformed into a hotel by a large international chain.
