Population: 503 inhabitants.
Name of inhabitants: Saint-Léonard.
Although its history goes back probably to the time of the Gauls with the entrenched installed on the site of Narbonne, the 6th is really where it all begins. A hermit named St. Leonard decides to isolate himself and built an altar and a cell. Soon the site becomes a place of pilgrimage named Vandoeuvre. A monastery is built, replaced by the present church in the 12th century.
The lands of St. Leonard also received large estates, families and Linthe Hardaz were the benefactors of the village for many centuries.
