Description of this building by J. Rey :

Le Castrum d’Allègre est une co-seigneurie unique dans la région, il offre, outre la visite des ruines, un superbe panorama sur les Cévennes et le mont Bouquet. Inscrit à l'Inventaire Supplémentaire des Monuments Historiques, ce "village de Chevaliers", reconnu dès le XII ème siècle est riche de son histoire et de ses vestiges, on y recense 12 maisons nobles. Il fut ruiné par la Révolte des Tuchins.
