Stade Pierre-Antoine and Golf de Castres Gourjade are also good spots for a visit before returning to Saint-Sernin-sur-Rance.
The most rewarding places for travelers to visit when they first arrive in a place they have never been are the ones that provide a window into the local culture. Make a trip to Midi-Pyrenees' art museums, art galleries and history museums. This region is blessed with a truly fascinating religious history; learn more at the area's most sacred churches.
For those leading a fast-paced life, the perfect holiday often means making time to breathe deeply. When it's time to de-stress, follow the lead of the locals and enjoy cycling or wildlife watching. Hop into your snow gear and have a go at skiing or cross-country skiing. These activities are great options for locals and visitors.
At the end of your holiday in Saint-Sernin-sur-Rance, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your euros, and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to this unique part of the world.
