Geocache Description:

[FR]
Châtel-Montagne vient du latin Castrum in Montanis, littéralement « château dans la montagne ».

Le village est situé sur une branche de la voie Romaine reliant les villes de Vichy et Roanne.

D’importantes foires se tenaient à Châtel-Montagne au XVIème Siècle.

Le village a été marqué par la présence religieuse entre le XII et le XVIème Siècle, d’un prieuré et de 4 moines.

Les différents seigneurs qui se sont succédés en tenant une place importante dans l’histoire locale ont assuré la renommée de leur fief.

Au Xième Siècle, une importante baronnie règne sur notre village. Les Seigneurs de Châtel-Montagne figurent parmi les plus grands vassaux des Sires de Bourbon. On les retrouve compagnons de Duguesclin et participant aux croisades contre les maures sous le commandement de Louis II de Bourbon. En 1567, Nicolas de Nicolaï place le bourg et le château sous la dépendance de la châtellerie de Billy et de Vichy.
