Medieval Mirepoix

Medieval Mirepoix

The centre of Mirepoix is built around the place de Couverts which in turn has the 14th century Maison des Consuls as its main attraction.The overhanging arcades have exposed beams and from these there are approximately 150 individually carved wooden heads.

Mirepoix started life on the other side of the River Hers but following a terrible flood in 1209 which wiped out many of the villages in the area Mirepoix was rebuilt on the opposite bank. Mirepoix suffered during the Hundred Years War but then became an important textile centre in the 15th century.

The highlight of this ancient bastide town is the central square - the Place des Couverts - surrounded by medieval houses and arcades (covered walkways in front of the shops).

It's name is cited for the first time in the 10th century in a charter granted to the inhabitants by the count of Foix Raymond Roger and is thought to have celtic origins.

The 'Maison des Consuls' is one of the best of these buildings. Have a look at the carved figures on the ancient woodwork, these include African heads, women’s heads and a tortoise. There are an incredible 103 carvings in total!

Over at the other end of the square sits the tourist office in one of the lovely buildings. Look outside the tourist office for the two grain measures dating from the 17th -18th century. They hold 20 litres of grain each. There is also a wrought iron market hall in the centre of the square, built in the 19th century.

Market day in Mirepoix is a Monday.

Ye Olde Six Bells

Ye Olde Six Bells

This was our local watering-hole in our "youf".

The origins of the pub are reputedly 9th century (though I do wonder if there is ANY historical basis for this claim at all), but most of the current building is 15th century. It obviously gets its name from the bells in St Bart's church. Both the church and the pub are on the River Mole, only a mile or two from its source near the runway at Gatwick Airport.

A popular place to visit by people staying at the very many airport hotels.
