History[edit]

From the 4th century AD, barbarians swept into the Gallic Empire. In the 5th century, the Germanic peoples and Burgundians settled in the area; the town owes its name to these people: the pronunciation in Germanic gave "Burgundiaca" meaning "field of the Burgundians."

Sites and Monuments[edit]

  • The Church of Our Lady of Bourgougnague (Église Notre-Dame de Bourgougnague) from the 13th century. The choir was painted before World War II by the Italian painter Giovanni Masutti, from Stevana in the Treviso region.
  • The Church of St. Lawrence (Église de Saint-Laurent).
  • Jolibert Castle (Château de Jolibert) which houses the first of the Rural Family Homes (Maison familiale rurale - an association devoted to educate young people) in Europe.
  • The manor of the great moor with its chapel dating from the 16th century. This area is a dependency of the Lauzun castle but was also a hunting reserve of King Henry IV.
