Beaumont-de-Lomagne, an exemplary royal bastide

Beaumont de Lomagne, an exemplary royal bastide, was founded in the 13th century, between 1276 and 1279, following an act of parage between the abbey of Granselve and the king of France, Philippe III le Hardi, represented by his seneschal Eustache de Beaumarchais.

As in most bastides, the center of the city is occupied by a square, a place of commercial exchanges, which hosts fairs and markets.

Beaumont-de-Lomagne is characterized by a geometrical division of the space around its immense 14th century market hall, its cobblestone floor, its 13th century fortified church of Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, numerous half-timbered houses and houses of character, private mansions and dovecotes...

Its immense square hall of the 14th century of 36,40 m of side, has an impressive frame supported by 38 posts resting on stone bases of various levels to compensate for the slope.

At the beginning of the 19th century the hall was closed. It was only after 1810 that it became an open hall.

Beaumont-de-Lomagne is also the birthplace of Pierre de Fermat

His birthplace houses an exhibition that allows visitors to discover the life and work of this mathematician of genius who held scientists around the world in suspense for more than 350 years with his last great theorem.

You should also take advantage of your stay to visit the Bordevieille racetrack and the leisure village "Le Lomagnol".

Finally, one should not forget that the Lomagne is the land of white garlic. Its cultivation dates back to the 13th century, taking off at the end of the Second World War thanks to traders who made this land an important center of the garlic trade in France.
