TOWN PRESENTATION

The soil has been inhabited since prehistoric times: dolmens, menhirs, stone axes testify. The Romans occupied the territory also: Brick, swords and bronze tools were found. The name of Crossac (Croazac, Chroachac, Croysiac) seems to come from a Gallo-Roman Crossius melted or Crossilius.

The Lordship of Crossac called lordship, founded in the 11th century, had its headquarters at the castle of the angle. In the 18th century, it depended on the Barony of Pont-Château and its seat was Castle Bellebat. Visible locations of these two castles.
