Pomas dates back to the 9th century when it was known as Pomaris.  In 1212, the local lord, Bernard de Pomars, a Cathar, was denounced as a heretic; his lands were taken and given to Philippe Golhoin. In 1559, the Rabot family took over the lordship of Pomas. The lordship was sold off in 1719.
The château de Pomas dates back to the 12th century and is notable for its square tower and cruciform archers' windows.
Its shops include a bakery, a specialist local wine shop, and a tobacconist. It has a small private museum specialising in exotic shells. 
There are attractive walking routes in the hills around Pomas.
