In this quiet little village, it is difficult to imagine that one of the bloodiest episodes in the history of Catharism took place there: the massacre of the Inquisitors. Who were they? What were they doing in Avignonet-Lauragais and why were they murdered in their sleep?

Your tour guide will tell you all the details of this episode in the history of Occitanie. As you walk through the streets, you will learn more about this former large commercial city located on a major road axis, theancient Roman road in Aquitaine.
