France This Way comment: the village of Brassac is tiny but it is home to both a chateau and a church both of which are listed historic monuments so a small detour is recommended if you are nearby

Church in Brassac

Note: the information below refers to Brassac in the Tarn-et-Garonne department, not the village of the same name to the east in the Tarn department: see Brassac - Tarn.

The village is set on raised ground and so commands good views of the surrounding countryside

The Church of Saint-Severin in the centre of Brassac was largely destroyed during the Hundred Years War but has been re-built since, particularly during the 16th and 19th centuries. The carved entranceway is perhaps the highlight of this quaint church.

The Château de Brassac is also a listed historic monument. It was built in the 12th century and modified up until the 16th century. The castle started out as a fortified house with a moat and defensive walls and gradually developed its more fortress-like appearance over the 13-16th centuries.

You can learn more about the Chateau de Brassac including their opening hours here (and our thanks also to the Chateau de Brassac for supplying photos of the castle for our photo gallery!)

Exploring the region around Brassac

The Pays de l'Agenais is a quiet region of rolling agricultural landscapes with an incomparable charm, where numerous small villages and hamlets sit largely undisturbed by tourism - a great region for a slower pace of travel while you absorb the atmosphere, and plenty of opportunities to discover the rural France of times gone by. Certainly when we visited Brassac there wasn't another soul to be seen - resident or tourist!

You can find more travel ideas in the Tarn-et-Garonne guide and the Midi-Pyrenees guide.
