historique The village of Connaux was founded by Benedictine monks from St-Pierre-de-Castres. Towards the middle of the 13th century, Connaux mostly consisted of a vast marsh. The Benedictines went down into the plain and built an enclosure with four towers on top of a rock. They built the first houses of Connaux around a modest 13th-century Romano-Byzantine church.
