Saint-Felix Lauragais

Because the charter has not survived, the exact date of the bastide's founding is not clear, but it appears to be sometime in the second half of the thirteenth century. Possibly it was created by Eustache de Beaumarchais, the royal senechal who was so active in bastide formation. This small, linear bastide has an unusual street pattern. Two main streets define the east and west sides of the market square, but except for a very narrow and short lane leading off the northwest corner of the square, the four corners of the square 165-foot square space are defined only by the two streets and buildings lining its sides.
