To see

The church of Limbrassac:
Saint-Romain is the patron saint of this small Romanesque church whose extreme simplicity makes all its charm. It is distinguished by its portal, south side, very characteristic of Romanesque art. Most Romanesque churches have only one door. The church of Limbrassac had two: the north, opening on the village square was built in broken arches, but it is now walled.

The source of Laouzado in Troye d'Ariège:
It was for a long time the only fountain of the village before the supply of drinking water was carried out.
