The name comes from the Celtic noun “Buga” which probably means “wildland” and proves then that people have been living in this area for a very long time. During the Gallo Roman period, at least 2 villas are known to have existed on the current land of the city: “Le Champ du Palais” and “La Ganette”. Under the Ancien Regime, the city was shared between Marche and Limousin: the frontier divided the village into two parts following the line of the Turgotiere street.
