There are no particular sights here to attract tourists; it's more a pretty place for a short visit if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

Central square of Montpezat, Place de

The main square of Montpezat is is the large, open Place de l'Eglise, with the town hall (Mairie) and a corner of the massive old castle. The medieval fortress-castle probably dates to the 12th century, although mention of it doesn't appear in any archives. The chateau is privately owned and isn't open to visits.

The covered lavoir of Montpezat with

Montpezat Lavoir

A large, covered lavoir is located 200 m southeast of the old village, out a farming road that goes southeast down through the vineyards and fields and up into the garrigue. The hiking panel at "La Garenne" (bottom of the steps below the parking lot and the park/playground) is marked "Combe Obscure"; that's a point in the garrigue well past the lavoir.
