The Aître de Brisgaret is a rare example in France of a medieval cemetery with a gallery that has retained its original vocation.

The site has a gallery-ossuary built in the 16th century which has retained its authentic framework. It is adorned with sculptures and wall decorations representative of macabre art.
At the end is a chapel dated 1602 and an original Gothic cross at the site of the mass grave.

This monumental complex required a major restoration work between November 2012 and June 2014 which revealed the exceptional character of the site.

The visit is enhanced with explanatory panels equipped with a QR code allowing access to the content of the aitre-de-brisgaret.blogspot.com blog.
