Saint-Felix Lauragais

Sitting on its rock, the picturesque village of Saint-Félix Lauragais is a former Roman camp. Its position made it a perfect strategic stronghold to watch over the valley between the Montagne Noire and the Lauragais’ hillsides.

Perched on a rock, the characterful village of Saint Félix Lauragais was an old Roman camp. It has always had an important strategic place allowing the villagers to watch the valley between the Black Mountain and the hills of Lauragais.

The village offers you a breathtaking view of the Lauragais plain. This plain, known as the granary of Occitanie, oversaw the cultivation of woad during the 16th century. The castle was built in the Middle- Ages and witnessed the first Catholic Council in 1167. Saint Felix is also the birthplace of Guillaume de Nogaret, legal expert of Philippe IV le Bel and of Déodat de Séverac, a famous French composer and musician (1872-1921).
