Peypin d'Aigues and its history:

An ax,  dating to the Bronze Age, was found in the hamlet of Roux. Many Gallo-Roman tombs have been excavated on the site of the hamlet of Notre Dame. One of them was covered with a slab bearing inscriptions.

In 1506, an act of housing was established with several heads of families to repopulate Peypin.
In 1532, by order of Francois I, investigators sent by the Parliament of Aix, went in search of "those taking to the sect of Luther beyond the Durance."
The inhabitants fled before their arrival. This did not prevent, in 1545, looting and burning of the village. The Church of St. Jerome was destroyed in the process. It was rebuilt in 1620.
