History

In the history of the village, the battle amid the Roman armies and the two barbarian people named the Ambrones and the Teutons is quite important. This battle took place in 102BC on the Via Aurelia close to the village. General Caius came out as winner in this battle. Numbers of people died in this battle. Due to killing of innumerable soldiers in this battle, there were rotten fields in the village. The name Pourrières of the village is believed to be derived from the same fact. Rotten fields are known as campi putridi in French. This led to the formulation of the term “champs pourris” and hence the name of the village. This historical event can still be memorized by visiting a monument in the plains of the village. The Lord of Glandeves constructed a new castle on the site of the medieval fortress in the 14th century. This castle again underwent significant modifications in the 18th century.
