Built against a hill overlooking a plain covered with vineyards with the Rhone valley in the distance, the town was once part of the medieval domain of the Sabran family, vassals to the Count of Toulouse.
Interesting sights include an 11th-century church and a 13th-century fort, known locally as Le Castellas, and which was restored by the French volunteer organization La Sabranenque.
There are several wineries in the village producing Côtes du Rhone wines.
