Take the opportunity to participate in the University of e-health, which will be held in the heart of the city of Castres this year, to extend your adventure in our beautiful territory in the South-West, where conviviality and curiosities are combined.

Ideally located in the heart of Occitania, Castres-Mazamet has lots of attractions. Situated halfway between Albi and Carcassonne, and within easy reach of the Toulouse metropolitan area, Castres is the epicentre of Occitania.
