History of the village

Primarily set on the heights of the neighboring hill, Eyguians was erected around 739 then known under the name of Laquaticum.

In 1264, the Mévouillons, lords of Arzeliers even raised defensive ramparts. In the early twentieth century with the railways and industrialization, its inhabitants abandoned the village to be closer to the valley and the roads.

(Since  the 1st of january 2016 Eyguians village is one of the 3 towns delegates of the new common GARDE COLOMBE together with Lagrand and St Genis) 

 

Of this ancient village, Old Eyguians, remain interesting ruins that can be discovered in a green setting accompanied by the chirping of cicadas.
