A castle was recorded here in the 11th century and the village developed next to it. During the second half of the 12th century, the site was encircled by a strong enceinte one kilometre in length with three gates. After the unification of Septème to Dauphiné, a more modern castle was constructed in the 14th and 15th centuries.
The village has grown beyond the original enceinte, and now extends as far as the river.
