The southern gateway to the Verdon gorges, the history of this village of character goes back to the 6th century B.C., with the settlement on the Saint-Marc plateau, near the caves, of a Celto-Ligurian tribe, the Verrucini.

Today, the village is especially known for its truffle market, opened every year on the last Thursday of November by the president of the Var truffle growers' union, and where amateurs meet every Thursday morning from the end of November to the beginning of March, from 9.30am to 12pm on the Place Mistral, to see the evolution of the price and quality of the black truffle.

The truffle house was inaugurated on the occasion of the opening of the truffle season in 2015. It is located on the ground floor of the tourist office and on the first floor.
