Castres: A Teeny, Tiny, Little Bit Like Venice

On my way back from Lautrec, I stopped at the nearby small city of Castres. The skies on the western horizon were darkening, so I didn’t stay long. But I did manage to see – at least, from the outside – several of the town’s highlights.

The Agout River flows through town and the main highlight (for me anyway) was the small section of houses built right on the left bank (no, not that Left Bank).

Renovated medieval-era houses along the Agout.

Here’s another view:

Squint and you can perhaps think this is Venice.

The town has some pretty gardens. It also has a Goya Museum, which if I get back to town, I’ll have to visit.

That’s all I have. If I make it there again, I’ll have more stories and photos.
