  The River Agout
by hquittner

Castres is a good half-way stop between Carcassonne and Albi. It has an excellent Art Museum devoted to Gpya and the Spanish painters. It include 3 major Goya paintings and also exhibits 4 series of his late etchings (hundreds of them!). There are gardens by Le Notre beyond the museum where you could eat a picnic lunch and look at the fine river ban views. Those who have time can take a water-bus on the river. We have some Tips on our stay.
