Their old fortified castle having been dismantled following the wars of religion, the Lords of Peyre who reigned over most of North Gévaudan decided to transfer the seat of the barony to La Baume.
In 1630, Antoine de Grolée had a house built on this site which is no longer a fortress but whose thick local granite walls still give it a very defensive character.
At the end of the 17th century, his son, César de Grolée, Count of Peyre, Lieutenant General of King Louis XlV for Languedoc, had the castle decorated by local craftsmen.
In 1710 expansion work was undertaken: the interior decoration was entrusted to artists from Montpellier and Paris. Visitors will notice the contrast between the rustic style of the 17th century, and the exuberance of the 18th century which earned it the title of "Versailles of Gévaudan".
The family of the Count of Las Cases, owner since 1858, ensures the conservation and animation of La Baume.
