Clocher de Cabanès



During the Second World War, this town was home in May 1944 from the bush in the valley of Antoine Lézert.First composed of about sixty men, soon regrouped in the bush close to 300 on the picturesque site of Villelongue. The two main leaders and the commander Antoine Delaure pledged action against the Germans in Carmaux, Rodez, the Lévézou and Wood Oven.
The scrub was visited by the Colonel Berger (Malraux) July 22, 1944.Starting again with his stopover at about 3 in the afternoon, Malraux was ambushed by the Gestapo at the entrance to Gramat. He was then imprisoned in Saint-Michel de Toulouse.
A small museum of the Resistance has since emerged in Villelongue.
