The history of this village dates back to the 12th century, when it was part of the earldom and then the province of Le Forez. It is the history of a chateau and a little town in the middle of a clearing in the woods. Its interest lies in its beauty and quality of the local architecture, which has been exceptionally well preserved. A hundred or so houses, protected by an enclosure of which two gates, towers and walls remain, were added to the castle. Until the revolution, Cervières was the seat of an important jurisdiction: its castle was considered the best stronghold in the Forez area, bordering Auvergne.
