Culture.

Church.

On the village square, the square Roman-style bell tower of the former church is a listed historic monument. The current church was built in 1636 and restored in 1989. Its magnificent windows were made by glassmaker, artist and illustrator Bodjol (1919–2006).

Maison du bailli.

Maison du bailli Maillardoz (1594), rue St-Georges 11, Grandvaux. Listed as a historic monument, the immense roof of this house with its distinctive two pikes is a remarkable sight.

Corto Maltese.

One of the village squares is named after the famous cartoon illustrator and scriptwriter Hugo Pratt (1927-1995) who lived in the upper part of the commune for over 10 years. A statue of his hero Corto Maltese has been erected on the square.
