The history of the town is linked to that of the mine and its founder, Duke Decazes, who was a minister of King Louis XVIII but who, above all, created the Société des Houillères et Fonderies de l'Aveyron in 1826. The city has this typical aspect of industrial cities that extend along the factories. In the centre stands the church, built on the initiative of Gracchus Cabrol, the mine manager, in 1847, following the model of the one in Genoa. The bell tower was completed in 1873, twelve years after the consecration of the church.
