Maison Saint Jules


Situated halfway between Carcassonne and Foix, Mirepoix is about a 15-20 min drive from Bram. Dating from the 10th Century it is well worth a visit. Especially on a Monday when it hosts a large market. 
On it’s large square you can admire the houses supported on massive wooden pillars, creating a magnificent covered arcade. The ends of the joists of the wealthiest houses are sculpted, and the most impressive of these can be seen on the Maison des Consuls,  women’s faces, bearded heads, a tortoise and other fantastic images.
