Geography and geology
Prehistory and antiquity
The commune's area was occupied prehistorically (approximately 100,000 BC), as is evidenced by the discovery of bifaces and Pottery. Evidence from the twenty-first century BC points to trade relations with Phocaea and ancient Marseille.
Roman colonization left behind altars to Mercury, coins from the Augustan and Trojan reigns, and various other artefacts.
