Additional Location Information
The land was occupied well before the Romans, who settled at Pennafort. Callas has been mentioned since 1030.
By the first half of the eleventh century there was an impressive number of nobles relying on their estates. The main Lord from the twelfth century was undoubtedly Pontevès.
In 1431 an army was sent to destroy Callas to punish the villagers because of their disobedience to the Count of Provence, King of Sicily. In Court, the city of Draguignan did everything it could to protect Callas from total ruin.
In 1578 the Lord of Callas, 80-year-old Jean-Baptiste de Pontevès, a terrifying dictator, had a legal action with Callas. Threatened with a judgement against him, he called on his nephew, the Count of Vins, who sacked the village - robbing many of the villagers and slitting their throats.
Jean-Baptiste de Pontevès and his son threatened the inhabitants of extermination, if they did not surrendered the lawsuit. Of this fact was signed a deal recognizing as granted and justifiable the appropriations and the despoliations of the Lord.
In April, 1579, an inhabitant of Jacques SASSY's name, a lieutenant of a company of Huguenots, and a dozen men managed to get on the place which they disarmed, and Pierre de Pontevès (son of Pontevès's J.-B) was murdered.
In 1607, the major Lordship is sold to the Count de Sault. In 1625, Duke de Lesdiguière buys in his turn the co-seigneury which stays in its family until 1687 when, by inheritance, it is acquired by Duke de Villeroy.
On August 26, 1718, the municipality buys the co-seigneury and donates it immediately to King Louis XV. This honoring is accepted on March 12, 1720 by an order of the council of State.
From 1852, the population decreases: 2185 inhabitants by that time, 1523 in 1891 , 1007 in 1911. But the activity remains lively. At the end of the XIX-th one sees to Callas a soap factory, a factory of pastas, an mine of baryte, a quarry. The mulberry tree came to add to the traditional cultures. The harvest of olives continues to give place to a very important business and feeds Draguignan's factories, as well as mills with oil of the village, which can not be enough. One statistics of 1892 counts 56000 olive trees in full production.
