DISCOVER CASTRES AND ITS AREA

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. Just one hour from the sea and ski resorts, and one hour and 15 minutes from Paris by air, you won’t find a more central destination than this one!

Explore our not-to-be-missed sites, our rich heritage (the Tarn’s little Venice, the colourful houses bordering the Agout River, France’s second largest collection of Hispanic art after the Louvre), our know-how and     traditions, and discover our little secrets.

Sightseeing trips
