The origin of its name comes from a Calvinus a Latin or Romanized Gauls from the Gallo-Roman period. The original nucleus of the town lay on the hills, crossed by a framed by a castle and a chapel road. He remained after the construction of the fortress called Paved street, lined by the artery called the Ditch. The town has expanded in the plain 19th century at the expense of neighboring municipalities and Cassaniouze Mourjou. It was at this time that Calvinet took off with the success of his shows and the opening of the road Maurs Montsalvy.
