Castres The Essential
Interesting
For a long time textiles brought prosperity to Castres, as you can see from the number weavers', dyers' and tanners' residences standing on the banks of the Agout. The colours of their reflection on its waters vary depending on the time of day. The town, which is home to a remarkable Goya museum, makes an excellent starting point for excursions into the Sidobre, the Lacaune mountains and the Montagne Noire, where gorges, rivers and rocks together make up a wild landscape.
