In the beginning
From « Orgueil » (Gallic origin), the village would praise a prestigious site The Mont Saint Sauveur.
On the tracks of past…
The blazon represent the weapons of main benefactor Gaston de Castelbajac, family native of Périgord.
Argueil is the administrative center of the canton since 1790.
Castle of Renaissance altered in the 17th and 18th century, with its rectangular keep.

Calvary, way of Monts
Old wells, rue de l’Abreuvoir
Church, built to replace a very former church which was on the Mont Sauveur. The materials of the church stem from the country: the flint for its apse, the brick and the white stone.
The chancel is certainly the most former part there, and would date the 15th and 16th century. During the 17th, were added the south chapel and the sacristy and to the 18th, the long nave of 18 meters.
The base of the bell tower is a quadrangular tower and possesses a clock dial situated in front of the castle and representing moon phases. The countess of Valon, owner of the castle, at the time, could see the hour of her window. This dial would have been made by abbot Lenostre, priest of Argueil and dean of Bray before the Revolution. A part of the woodwork of the church stem from the former Abbey of Bellozanne, ruined at the Revolution.
