Historical sites and monuments


Gateway to the Central Pyrenees, welcome to Saint-Béat Lez located in the south of the department of Haute-Garonne, between Pique and Garonne. Labelled "Station Verte" (Green Resort) for nature holidays!


Situated between the two great Midi-Pyrenees sites of Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges and Luchon, Saint-Béat Lez, because of its marble exploitation, was formerly named by the Romans, Passus lupi, the Pas du Loup. The passage was so narrow between the quarries and the Garonne that they meant that only a wolf could circulate there or that it was so frequent that it seemed to have the right to pass through at its own pleasure. The Romans discovered and exploited the marble which made the reputation of the ancient city. Today, its marble and sculpture festival still proves it.
