We deduce the presence of a Roman camp before the attacks, including a guard tower in woods had a basis in the 11th century for the construction of what would become one of the most powerful castles of Revermont. Through the centuries the castle changed hands many times, so that in 1601, when the final connection Revermont the Kingdom of France, it is neglected. The chimneys were removed and the inhabitants made use of stones on the top floor of the dungeon as a career to build their houses. Today, there remains a ruined tower of the feudal castle in the 13th century was one of the largest in the region.
