Lamastre was born in 1790 from the regrouping of three ancient communities: Macheville, Lamastre and Retourtour and saw the birth of many famous people such as Conrad Killian, Charles and Charles-André Seignobos, André-Ferdinand Hérold or Désiré Bancel.

Today, the town of Lamastre is a real crossroads with its 10 neighbouring communes (over 5000 inhabitants).
Its location, at the gateway to the Parc Naturel Régional des Monts d'Ardèche, makes it an important cultural and tourist centre.
