Vagnas is occupied by humans for 280,000 years due to the presence of sources, land of hunting and gathering, and arable land. The village is located in the path of communication channels (drailles Neolithic way for Greek goods from the Rhone to the Cevennes, Roman way of Antoninus Pius Alba-Nîmes ...). We identified the location of several Gallo-Roman villas in the area. A priory founded in the tenth century, the Monastier, whose ruins are located north of the village was visited by many pilgrims in the Middle Ages. The Battle of Vagnas in 1702, which saw the defeat of John Cavalier, head of the Camisards, marks the beginning of the victory of the royal troops Catholics in the Cevennes. In the nineteenth century, sericulture provides wealth of the country and justifies the presence of large homes, raising silkworms in effect requiring much space. The invention of synthetic silk and silk imports Far East in the late fifties mark the end of this activity.


The village remained virtually intact since the beginning of last century. The oldest houses of the village date from the fourteenth century and are built largely with stones taken from the priory Monastier, which was used as a quarry after it was abandoned around 1300. Do not miss visiting the museum with furniture found during the excavation of Monastier, the ruins of Monastier located 2 km north of the village, the washing of the monks, who planted the Stone is the milestone XXXI track Roman of Antoninus Pius, the dolmen Champagnac, the stone bridges of Rieusset, fountains ... Several marked hiking trails allow visitors to discover the beautiful surrounding countryside.
