As far back as we can trace, the first name of the town appears as “Coing” in 1367. It’s covered in areas which grow the quince fruit.

Prayelle fortified house and Saint-Barthélemy gothic chapel are 15th and 16th century remains in the heart of the village. You can also stroll along the paths of the former railway line, built in 1904 by the Germans at the bottom of the valley, in order to be sheltered from the enemy.
