The town of Beaumont-de-Lomagne was founded in the 13th century and its main square, the Place Gambetta, is still dominated by a large wooden market hall built in the 14th century. Surrounding the market hall there are attractive medieval buildings built of brick or stone and some of them with attractive arcades.

France This Way review: every Saturday morning the weekly market takes place under cover of this large open-sided hall and this is the most lively time to visit the town if possible.

Near to the central square you can see the large gothic church of Beaumont-de-Lomagne with its octagonal bell-tower. Inside the church is a large organ which is a classified 'Historic Monument'.

Around the Place Gambetta and in the surrounding streets there are a number of particularly noteworthy buildings:

  • the Hotel Toureilh is now home to the mairie and was built in the 17th century
  • the Hotel du Ruble on Rue Fermet has a facade typical of the 17th century
  • the Maison dit de Jean d'Armagnac has a lovely facade with a criss-cross wooden pattern built into it

You will also see the Hotel dit de Chartreuse with its large lumps of stone to protect it from the horses and carts in the streets and the Hotel Vernhes which has large lumps of stone sticking out from the building to help people to mount their horses.

The Hotel Pierre de Fermat on rue Fermat is now home to the Beaumont-de-Lomagne tourist office and was the birthplace of the famous mathemetician Pierre Fermat. Its tower houses an exhibition of mathematical games and enigmas.

Elsewhere in the Hotel Fermat there are two large 15th century fireplaces and a ceiling with the remains of some frescos and you can also get a good view across the town from here.
