Bastide de Miramont-de-Guyenne

Patrimoine culturel

The fortified town of Miramont was built on the banks of the Dourdenne between 1278 and 1286 by Edward I of England. The town was built on the site of a small Templar village and lookout point, which was supposedly destroyed by Simon de Montfort during the Albigensian Crusade. The bastide’s shape is characteristic of those built on a plain: square-shaped with four main streets running from the central square. The town’s structure has not changed over the years, although it is more densely-packed nowadays, and the buildings are still fairly homogenous.
