It is said that in the late 15th century there lived in St-Geniez a fisherman whose two children had captured a gopher. The little animal ran off scared on a stormy afternoon. The two children ran after it when a violent storm started and immersed the valley in a real deluge. On their return, several houses, including theirs had been washed away. By fleeing the little animal had saved their lives. They were nicknamed "the Marmots". By extension the name was given to all the inhabitants.
Pomayrols overlooks the Lot valley. In one of the rooms of the château, that dominates the village, this mini-museum holds a remarkable collection of agricultural tools from years gone by. Through these tools, M. Badoc makes working the fields, the vineyards and the strawberries of this Vallée d'Olt come back to life. A passionate trip back in time.
In 1672 the Augustine monks transfer part of their land to the Penitents de la Misericorde brotherhood. The latter, better known as the Black Penitents, referring to the colour of their cloaks, finished their chapel in 1705. It is dedicated to Saint Jean Baptiste.
