TOWN PRESENTATION

The known history dates back to the 11th century. While under the control of successive baronies of Castelnau and Gramat Autoire becomes a vassal cities of the vicomte de Turenne. The Viscounts of Turenne took care of their vassals and cities, during the Hundred Years War, Saint-Cere as Autoire had suffered little, well protected by the mighty ramparts of Saint Laurent. However, despite the protection afforded by Viscount William of Beaufort, the town was besieged by the English, already victorious in Haut Quercy. Devastated in 1562 by the Calvinists, the village did not recover the peace in 1588.

Since Autoire protects its site where you can taste the sweetness of life in Quercy.
