Le Mas d'Agenais
Base Manager Christian Lassauniere
welcomes you to Le Mas
. An old Roman town Le Mas
is full of history. Make a stop on the Saint- Jacques de Compostelle
way where this area has played a huge part in the historical change of the country. The Mas
was lost and gained several times during the crusades against the Albigeois
People, and was under English possession during the 100-year war. It then became French again and Catholic, taken by Admiral Coligny
. When the walls were rebuilt, the Prince Army, during the Fronde
, took it by storm.
