The Region - The Vidourle Valley
Established originally by the Romans, Quissac developed according to the whims of the Vidourle River. In the Middle Ages the town grew up in a meander of the river which provided a natural protection for the inhabitants. As was the case in many of the villages in the area, there where both Protestants and Catholics in the town. The religious wars caused much destruction. In the 19th century Quissac enjoyed calm and prosperity. The arrival of the railway helped develop the economy of the region.
