In this charming town of St Pons there is a lively pig festival - where you can enjoy eating any part of a pig. This year there was even a bit of cajun music with a band from the US. In the autumn there is an equally exuberant Chestnut Festival. Food is one of the fine things in life that the French savor with zeal
