A Mesolithic site that recalls the presence of the man from 7000 to 1200 BC can say that this land has been occupied since the earliest times.
1st century BC to 9th century AD, another remarkable site reflects the times Gallic, Gallo-Roman and Merovingian, the presence of pottery and mosaics.
The name of Attray is not clearly defined. We think it could come from "estreper" or "strop", meaning "clear".
Through a partnership with residents, the municipality and the Association Sports Entertainment Culture Attray (SLCA), which is behind the project, residents of the town are called officially since July 14, 2009, Attrayens and Attrayennes.
The church of Saint-Pierre:
Located outside the village on a hillside, the church Saint-Pierre could be situated on the site of the oratory of a Gallo-Roman city.
The steps leading down to the church consist of two tombstones probably dating from the 8th century, reflecting a cemetery also existed there.
In the 13th century, there is a rectangular church whose nave is vaulted. However, departures of the pillars arches reflected in the early 16th century, we had intended.
It is lighted on the east by a triplet.
In the late 15th century, was enlarged by projecting the nave of the church to give the traditional cross plan, adding a transept. It remains to be seen today as the opening on the north side, without knowing if the arm was completed. The south arm was extended and there is a low arched side that can be dated from the fifteenth, early 16th century.
It is likely that the 13th century church would certainly have a simple belfry while at the same time, the tower was being built today.
End seventeenth, early 18th century, the heart was decorated and the vestry was built.
It was not until the early 20th century that the porch was added on the west facade.
