History[edit]

The hamlet of Corbère-les-Cabanes starts growing in population from the 16th century and on. In the 19th century, the territory is still part of the commune of Corbère. Yet, thinking it is now big enough, its people ask to become an independent commune from Corbère. This is finally done on May 14, 1856.[1] · [2]
