Geography[edit]

Condorcet is roughly 10 km (6.2 mi) north-east of the town of Nyons.

History[edit]

The history of Condorcet begins in late antiquity. An old local tradition holds that the ancient, ruined part of the village was once occupied by a forest sacred to druids. The monks of Cluny Abbey founded a priory in Condorcet in the 10th century. The counts of Die (Drôme) were the lords of Condorcet from the earliest days of feudalism.
