Grignan became a hillside and fortified village, built at the foot of the castle, during the 12th century, and the original town was protected behind sturdy walls since the 13th century. The village extended outside the walls during the 16th century and trade increased. The Adhémar de Monteil family, who built the castle, were the lords of Grignan until the beginning of the 18th century.
