The Bastide was built in the 13thC on a strictly rectangular plan laid out around the central square, Place Carnot. It pales by comparison with the near-by Cite but is worth a wander round if you have the time to spare.

I am staying in the Bastide and I enjoy the markets and the meat and fish shops. Can be a bit dodgy at night though.
