The priory is formed of a chapel, an ancient building now partially in ruins and of a cimetery which still fulfils its role today. It is surrounded by a domain composed of terraces that were cultivated in different forms: gardens, vineyards, meadows, fruit and chestnut trees. Nowadays, it is filled with Montpellier maples, sessile oaks, dogwoods and other local varieties. Cedars and resinous trees, planted by the ONF (National Forests Office) in order to fight against the erosion of the land, are also to be added to this list. The priory has been affected by the French Wars of Religion in the XVIth c and by the Cevennes War in the XVIIIth c. Furniture and a part of the presbytery are then burned. During the French Revolution, the church is kept as a monument, the parish is bought by Jacques Roman, the last secularised prior and first elected mayor of the village. In the XIXth c, the church was still active until 1867, and the presbytery became a farm that will be abandoned in the XXth
