Tradition and folklore

Here the culture is Occitan. And to get to know its traditions you’ve got to be happy to ‘festejar’, which basically means ‘have a party’ in the Occitan language. It’s through the local village fetes and activities that you’ll get to know the best of the local culture. And if you spot a procession of people all dressed up in velvet, well that’s the Brotherhood of the Order of the Divine Bottle of Gaillac – a group dedicated to the high, noble Rabelaisian tradition of… having fun.
