Castres : Michelin's recommendations
There is plenty to do in Castres. There is the Goya museum, which is a «must», there are the horse-drawn barges to see this town of tanners and weavers by, and there is the Black Mountain within easy reach, which offers many potential excursions. It is a nice place to live... where the pace of life is at Spanish tempo.
