Verosvres is a commune in the Saône-et-Loire department in the region of Bourgogne in eastern France.

History[edit]

The name Verosvres is derived from the Gallic word Verobriga, vero meaning "true" or "good" and briga meaning "fortress": thus giving "Good castle".[2]

In 1920, the town of Verosvres formed "an agglomeration of about eighty houses, including one for the post office and telegraph." The town was then served by a railway line, now defunct, which connected Paray-le-Monial to Mâcon, and stopped at a station called "Les Terreaux — Verosvres".[3]
