With its name coming directly from Maréchal Jean-de-Dieu Soult, Saint-Amans-Soult is a beautiful town in the south-east of Tarn. Located in the Thoré valley at the very heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park, this is a nice stopover that offers great discoveries!
Follow your path ... green!
Coming to Saint-Amans-Soult can be acheived via the Passa Païs cycle path. It is a path of more than 80 km, stretching from Mazamet to Bédarieux in the Hérault. A former railway line, it allows those who use it to make a beautiful bucolic excursion through valleys and hills. On foot, on horseback or by bike, it is a quiet getaway to other horizons.
A postcard castle
The Château de Soult-Berg was the home of Marshal Jean-de-Dieu Soult, a great French statesman under King Louis-Philippe. It is in his honour that the town bears his name. In Empire style, the construction of this castle was completed in 1828. It is classified as a Historic Monument. Just like its park which brings together more than 200 local and exotic species. The park is freely accessible.
Always more art at Tortill’Art
Located in the former Saint-Amans-Soult train station, the Tortill’Art is a superb performance hall. Each year, it benefits from quality cultural programming: concerts, children’s shows, theater, exhibitions, etc. It is also a place of creation and residence for artists: the great (Tortill ’) Art, yes !!
The Montagne Noire has long housed many glassworks, especially in the 16th and 17th centuries. Even if these no longer exist today, we can still see 3 archaeological glassworks sites in Saint-Amans-Soult, in particular the Peyremoutou forest glassware.
