Sightseeing Castres 1 See the artworks at the Musee Goya

This museum is almost certainly the premier attraction in Castres. The Musee Goya boasts a superb collection of art, with paintings by Goya (obviously), but also Murillo and Picasso to enjoy. The stunning gardens are also an attraction, having been designed by the architect of the gardens at the Palace of Versailles.

2 Visit the Cathedral of Saint Benoit

Dating back to the seventeenth century, this is a fine Catholic cathedral and is well worth a visit. Enjoy the tranquility of the soaring interior space and the peace of the church grounds. The rest of the city centre is equally noteworthy, with an elegant city hall and medieval tower which is the only survival from an extensive Benedictine Abbey.

3 Learn about Catharism

The region around town used to be a hotbed of religious dissent against the Pope, and the Catharism Museum at nearby Mazamet is a wonderful introduction to this rebellious streak. Interesting exhibits showcase the folk ways of the region such as funeral rites and artistic traditions in beautifully manicured grounds.

4 Enjoy the Castres Model Railroad

Located in the Gourjade Leisure Park, this Model Railroad will appeal to any locomotive enthusiasts. See a huge network of trains whizzing around a model city and landscapes modelled to resemble the Languedoc region.

5 Tuck into a Michelin starred meal

France is world-famouse for her cookery skills, and Castres is no exception, with a clutch of superb restaurants serving up the specialities of the Languedoc region. Visitors may be surprised by the affordability of high-class meals at restaurants like L Victoria and Bistrot Saveurs.

Required travel documents for France

France is one hour ahead of the UK. Other than that (and the need to drive on the right) there should be few worries for British visitors. Travellers should remember to apply for an EHIC card to cover their health needs (www.nhs.uk/EHIC?), but other than that France is an easy country to visit and should present no problems.
A little off the beaten track, Castres is a peaceful and beautiful town in south-west France near Toulouse. There are lovely trails and cycle paths in the surrounding countryside, great food and world-class art to enjoy in town.
