The walls and the remains of the old feudal castle testify to a glorious past. The village was settled at the beginning of Christianity. The castle was first mentioned in 1121. In 1379 - in the age of the Avignon popes - the brother of Pope Gregory XI took up residence there. Henry de Montmorency was one of the most famous generals of the 17th century and one of the most important generals of Louis XIV. Against the royal will, he ordered the dismantling of the castle of Cornillon in 1632. From the courtyard of the castle, where an open-air theatre has been set up, and from the lookout point "le Barry", there is a magnificent panorama over the valley of the Cèze.
