Come and discover the rich past of this village, witness to a major episode during the crusade against the Albigenses in the XNUMXth century: the massacre of the Inquisitors.

Avignonet-Lauragais is located on a promontory. It is a stage of the way of Saint-Jacques de Compostelle (Voie d'Arles, Via Tolosa), the GR 653.

The Canal du Midi stretches at the foot of the village which houses two pretty locks ("En Cassan" and "Emborel") as well as a small marina (Port-Lauragais).
In addition to the magnificent Gothic Church of Our Lady of Miracles (XNUMXth-XNUMXth centuries), Avignonet-Lauragais has an interesting historical heritage, witness to its rich and tumultuous past: the remains of the ramparts (XNUMXth and XNUMXth century) and of the castle fort (XNUMXth century) and the XNUMXth century pepper tower which once was part of the fortification system.

Take a walk in the village: in the Grand'Rue, you will discover the beautiful XNUMXth and XNUMXth century residences.

The village is also the starting point for several beautiful walks, either towards the Canal du Midi or towards Fanjeaux via the Collines du Vent route.

Visits for groups on request all year round: follow the guide who will tell you all about the history of this quiet little village of Lauragais ...
