Villes et villages fleuris



The first certain trace of the existence of the city dates back to 961, when Raymond I, Count of Rouergue, gives a testament to the abbey of Moissac, St. Saviour Church and its land.
Marked by wars against the English until the late twelfth century and the Albigensian Crusade in the first half of the thirteenth century, Castelsarrasin, administered by consuls, received his first customs (legal texts governing the city) in 1230.
After being ravaged the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries by floods, pestilence and especially the Hundred Years War, religious wars raging in 1560; Castelsarrasin, Catholic, is struggling with the rest of the region, rather Protestant.

The Church of St. Saviour is also one of the few who escaped the destruction. It can be visited daily from 9 am to 18 pm. Free. It houses the relics of St Alpinien.


From 1850 the town with 7000 inhabitants starts to grow and expand, particularly with the arrival of the railroad and the "Factory".
In the twentieth century, despite the terrible bloodletting of the two wars, the city continues to expand to this day she is becoming the second business website Tarn et Garonne.
Indeed, Castelsarrasin keeps its industrial vocation while maintaining its lifestyle, its live, thanks to its rich religious and historical architectural heritage, its typical streets of the Middle Ages, its channel (used by barges) the variety of its cuisine, its windows and flower gardens.
