CASTELNAUDARY: World capital of the "Cassoulet" and set on the banks of the Canal du Midi (UNESCO Heritage site), this large town can offer shopping, dining and a number of other pursuits.
Activities at a glance...
Shopping - A wide range of shops (from Géant and SuperU to small tabacs selling foreign newspapers).
Dining - Plenty of Maisons de Cassoulet. And if you really like the taste, why not visit in the last week of August when the Cassoulet fête is held. For vegetarians, be sure to sample the (generously-sized) chevre chaud salad and house red at Pause Café. Delicious!
Sight-seeing - Have a wander along the Canal du Midi to Castelnaudary's picturesque marina.
