Description

GPS parking : 43.62882, 2.49675

The Agout river, emerging from a steep gorge, meanders into a vast basin. In the Middle Ages, it separated the castles of the lordships of Castelnau (right bank) and Belfortès (left bank). This river carried away the bodies of the belligerents during the struggles between Protestants and Catholics in the 16th century. It operated the fulling mills (paradors) which pressed the woolen cloths to give them their consistent texture. In the 17th century Brassac was already producing the best quality, called cordelats. Brassac was developing thanks to the energy of its river and its men.
