La Sauvetat-du-Dropt is a small village along the Dropt that keeps many elements of its architectural past, which was once the seat of a monastery.

The Sauvetat derives its name from the Latin "salvitatem" means action to save, hello, sauveté. It was the name given to all cities of refuge, which enjoyed a non-aggression guarantees granted by the local lord. The Sauvetat was under the sovereignty of Priors Abbots who were the lords who, because of the perpetual state of violence, surrounded by thick walls. Towards the end of the 11th century under the feudal system and during the establishment of the great fiefs, it was part of the domain of the lords of Caumont. Nompar de Caumont, first name, was the overlord in 1211.

In 1211, her name was, moreover, the Sauvetat de Caumont. In 1789, she took the name Sauvetat du Drot then finally in 1910 its present name La Sauvetat-du-Dropt.

The Sauvetat gave birth in 1619 Jean Claude, son of the pastor of the Reformed Church of The Sauvetat, himself became pastor in 1645. Disciple of Calvin, it was seen as one of the greatest men of his time because of its theological authority. Forced into exile following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685), he found refuge in The Hague with the court of the Prince of Orange, where he died January 13, 1687 at the age of 68 years.

The town also saw the birth of the General Jacques Delmas de Grammont (1796-1862), who in 1850 had adopted the first law punishing mistreatment of pets.
