At the crossroads…

Boissezon is often the point of arrival and departure of a stage of Saint-Jacques de Compostelle, to then enter Castres. Located on the Arles road, our village arrives after the “mountain” before returning to the plain of Castraise.

The nature that surrounds it is rich and varied. In addition, Boissezon is also the starting point for several hiking circuits.

Goal for Peace
