Long Description:
[FR] La commanderie du temple, réunie à celle de Sainte Eulalie du Larzac fut fondée en 1234. Il existait déjà à cet endroit une bastide fortifiée avec des loges refuges comme à Vezins, et un château qui fut complété en 1381 par une tour. La commanderie fut unie à celle des Canabières (ordre de Saint Jean de Jérusalem) après la suppression de l'ordre du Temple (1302). Le lieu dépendait de la paroisse de Saint Amans d'Escoudournac.
