Couteaux de Sauveterre


Ranked "among the most beautiful villages in France", the royal bastide Sauveterre knows how to conquer the visitor in search of beauty, serenity and authenticity. Off the beaten track, the medieval city founded in 1281 by William de Vienne and Macon, representative of Philip III the Bold, holds many secrets.
The 47 arches of its central square, the streets of its neighborhoods checkerboard, its walls, carved doors, its wooden-framed houses illustrated reliefs will tell you the history of the site for several hundred years and yet alive! » OT Sauveterre "OT Sauveterre

Tradition : Day St Kitts - Buffatière

"The men in her nightgown to follow in single file armed with a fireplace bellows, blowing each in the back of his predecessor in singing. Ils forment ainsi une sorte de farandole grotesque. They form a kind of grotesque medley. This theme of "Soufflaculs" belongs to the carnival ritual in reverse. Indeed, tradition has it that the soul, laden with the sins accumulated throughout his life, escaping at the time of death, not by mouth but through the anus. We therefore used the bellows to suck the soul and dirty. To enhance the comic effect of the inversion of reality, the bellows is used here in contrast to its normal use: it blows instead of sucking. »

Sauveterre - sculpture


. "Sauveterre is known for its specialty "les échaudés". Not since the Arab invasion to find its origin in the need for preservation of food in times of raids.The name comes from the manufacturing process. This is a very hard dough, kneaded in a kneading machine which is more like a crusher. This dough is then folded into a small knots that are scalded in a tub of water. They rise to the surface, that is to say when they are sufficiently "scalded", they are dried. Once drying was done in the open street, to the delight of children who came to steal quietly. Once dry, they went in the oven. » Sauveterre 2000.
