The history of the village is inextricably linked to that of the château, as the first houses were built to house the housekeepers, farmers and gardeners who worked for the Montaut family, the lords and owners of the château. Attached to the new department of Tarn-et-Garonne created by Napoleon in 1808, Gramont was part of the canton of Saint-Clar (Gers) until 1790.

The village is built of limestone, as evidenced by the ashlar houses. It must be said that there were quarries on site and the rock was cut directly to form the foundations of the castle ramparts, as in Maubec.

Now take a closer look at Château de Gramont, a listed historic monument. It was built in the style of the “Gascon castles”: the medieval structures can be found in one of the parts, with its rectangular floor plan and its large room on the first floor, where you can still see the square tower known as the Simon de Montfort tower, the 14th-century braces, the three-lobed windows and the medieval spiral staircase. This primitive castle was remodelled in the 14th century and a dwelling added during the Renaissance.

Very close to the castle, the Church of St Hilaire was built for the protection of the inhabitants during the 14th century and for convenience, as the first church was located outside the village.
Take a look at the arched doorway and the bell tower with its square tower topped by a 4-sided roof.
