Lauzerte is a 12th century hilltop country house located on the "via Podiensis", one of the paths leading to Santiago de Compostela.

Originally, the hill of Lauzerte was a Gallic oppidum. Its current name dates from around the year 1000. Taken from the Latin "lucerna", lamp, it designates an ideal position, visible from afar like a light.

Extract from

It is one of the most beautiful villages in Tarn et Garonne.

Jacques Buchholtz and Lauzerte

A little dream in the head. A little earth in the hands. Much joy in the heart

Jacques Buchholtz

Ceramist and sculptor, Jacques Buchholtz left traces as he liked to say by taking again the quotation of Réné Char, "A poet must leave traces of his passage, not proofs. Only traces make one dream".

On the Place des Cornières, you will be able to see the raising of the facings of the ground named 'the Coin Relevé' carried out in 1988.
