    • Mazamet hides a most astonishing know-how which dates back to the last century. Until 1980, a unique industrial process made the city famous: delainage. The "woolen city" has developed a technique to separate the wool from the leather of sheepskins, without damaging the leather. About fifty factories were busy with this task and then traded with the whole world. The heating process thus took advantage of the fresh waters of the Arnette, the city's river. It was subsequently the "tannery", a second well-established industry in Mazamet, as well as in other surrounding towns, which took care of shaping the skins into objects of daily use or for clothing. The Musée du Délainage will reveal everything you need to know about Mazamet's industrial past and this unique technique.
      Mazamet is one of the most pleasant places for family vacations, you will find a multitude of things to see and do! Visit the Maison des Mémoires de Mazamet and its small Cathar museum. Discover one or all of the city's churches (of which there are 7), as well as the 3 Protestant temples.
      Very close to the city, do not miss the medieval city of Hautpoul, the ruins and remains of the castle. It is from Hautpoul that the first inhabitants and founders of Mazamet came, fleeing the Albigensian crusade and the killing of the inhabitants by the troops of Simon de Montfort.
