THE ORIGINS OF HEATHER IN MONTFAUCON-EN -VELAY
Since at least the 16th century the land of La Bruyère belonged to the d’ALLES family. Land was designated as La Bruyère-lès-Montfaucon at the western entrance to the village of Montfaucon. Slightly further south, a hamlet was called Bruas. This name is derived from bru with the augmentative suffix ‘as’, which means a heather-covered moor. There are many places in the region with names derived from ‘heather’. The heather is indeed a low semi-mountainous plant which grows in a scattered way in the Velay region.
