Between the Monts du Forez and Monts du Lyonnais mountain ranges, this town was simply called Montrond for a long time in reference to the mound on which the fortified castle sits. It became Montrond-les-Bains only in the late 19th century when a mining operation discovered the thermal water beneath the surface.
The little town has not stopped evolving since, until the modern thermal recreation centre was recently built.
