Why an exhibition of Occitan Catharism in Mazamet?

Catharism, dissident religion of the Christian faith, considered to be a heresy by the all-powerful Catholic Church, was condemned, and its adepts were persecuted. The Cathars were obliged to flee into remote areas and found refuge in the Montagne Noire : at the edge of the Aude Cathar Country.

The Tarn side of this mountainous massif constituted a place of refuge and resistance for this religion. Hautpoul, the historic birthplace of Mazamet, ancient castrum (fortified village) perched on a rocky outcrop, served as a retreat during the period of the Inquisition. It was also one of the places of residence of the Cathar Archbishop of the diocese of Albi in the 13th century. This Medieval village is one of the rare vestiges of the Cathar time to be situated on the Tarn side of the Montagne Noire...
  Specialities

The Fuzier Home is a beautiful dwelling dating from the end of the 19th century, bought in the 1980s by the town of Mazamet, to make it into a cultural and tourism centre open to the public.

In 2000, to safeguard the communal heritage, a planning project was launched to transform the Fuzier Home into the Remembrance House, central point for tourism promotion and the enhancement of the historic heritage of the town.

The centre houses:
• on the ground floor, the Tourism Office as well as two rooms which have been refurbished in the 19th century style, in order to recreate the ambience of this grand Bourgeois home and to situate it in its context of the local history of the fellmongering activity.
• And on the 1st floor, since 15 May 2005, the permanent exhibition « Occitan Catharism, in Remembrance »

Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....


The Grapes

The Grapes

There are thousands of grape varieties contributing to a vast array of different wine styles with each variety having its own distinct flavours and characteristics. Varieties can be made uniquely to make a wine, in whch case the wine is known as a varietal, or collectively with other varities, when the wine is known as a blend. The soils and ‘terroirs’ in the Aude area are very varied, from Schist, Sandstone, Marl, Gravel, Pebbles, Limestone, to Granit and Alluvial soil; thus making many marvelous and different styles of wine. Also in this massive area are many different grape varieties, the reds include Carignon, Cinsault, Granache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.

Le golf de Mazamet
La Barouge

Le golf de Mazamet La Barouge - Mazamet

18-Holes.

With its 18 holes (par 70 - 5635 meter - 1991 by Philippe Durand. Many of the golf courses in Southern France are quite new (developed in the last 10 years or so) this course is one which shows maturity. Located in a beautiful valley with interesting views and challenging holes. Well worth a visit, a popular and enjoyable course, especially the last hole that requires you to lay-up before your final approach across a local road - beware of cars crossing fairway! Situated at the foot of the Montagne Noir in the south Tarn area, this course is the oldest in the "Département" and one of the most beautiful in the region.

Castres

Castres

The city of Castres lies in the south-west of the Tarn department in the Midi-Pyrénées. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery, the Tarn countryside being home to many lovely chateaux, with glorious sunflower-filled fields providing a perfect backdrop for these elegant houses of days gone by. Castres is built on the River Agout, and the old houses on either side lean their upper stories out over the water as though reaching out to the opposite bank. These were once the homes of the weavers and the dyers, and this connection with the textile industry is still important to Castres today. Castres is full of history, and there are reminders of its past very much in evidence in the modern city. The city was founded around a Benedictine Abbey, but also existed in Roman times as Castroum. Monuments worth seeing are the Church of Saint Benoit, the fountain and the statue in the Place Jean Jaurès, the town hall which lies in the old Bishop’s palace, and the Quay of the Jacobains, viewed from the Pont Neuf. Also, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Goya Museum, which houses the largest collection of Spanish art in France. Castres is an excellent place to be if you are one of the many people who love the buzz and colour of French markets. The town has two daily markets, with fresh produce on offer in the main square, and a bric-a-brac or flea market in the Place Albanique. On Saturdays the general market stretches down the riverside, making a most picturesque place to shop!...
