The current village of Mirepoix, France dates back to 1290. In addition to the interesting
carved wooden figures in the beams of Maison des Consuls, the village has a beautiful
old church, St. Maurice, which was consecrated in the year 1590. Mirepoix, France is
also one of the many sites in southern France that was targeted by the Albigensian
Crusades and the people there were tortured and killed by the representatives of the
Catholic church. Now, more peaceful, Mirepoix is an excellent place to enjoy lunch,
a beer, or glass of wine overlooking a pleasant, ancient French village square. The
