You’d never guess the history behind the unassuming 11th century Roman Catholic Gothic church. When the Albigensian Crusader led by Simon de Monfort swept through Beziers, most of the population, about 20000 in all, were massacred. Many were burnt alive in Place de la Madelaine. Though the church itself only opens thrice a week, do visit the square outside – it’s a very lively spot. There are bars, restaurants and benches aplenty, and lots of excellent people watching. The square holds several markets throughout the week.
