Apart from Nier's house and the library, which seems to be the permanent residence of Popola, the village consists of a single strip of buildings by a river. This part of the town is called the Shopping District—however, it is the only district. There is also a large green field surrounding the village as well as a fountain near the library, where Devola sometimes goes to share her music.
The village has three large gates which lead to the outside world. After the attack on the village during the game's first half, the remaining gates are shut, and will then need to be opened when leaving each time. The ferry also becomes available for use after Kainé is freed from the library's door, opening up fast travel to the rest of the overworld.
