A reference to Camarès can be found in the IX century when it belonged to the abbey of Vabres. It was a fortress of the Protestant troops in the XVI century, during the religious wars. The charming bridge on the Dourdou (XI century) is the most significant monument. The village is located in the middle of the district of the Rougier, which is visible during the last part of the route. These are clay and schist soils, rich in iron oxides that provide a strong red brick colour. Thanks to many other minerals, such as copper oxides and silver lead, this place was inhabited and used during the Neolithic, as attested by the abundance of megalithic monuments.
