City of Art and History whose abbey and cloister are listed as World Heritage by
UNESCO, Moissac watches over its rich heritage from the Medieval Ages to the Modern
era. This project wishes to offer the downtown residents a green escape in the heart of their
living space. Accompanied by dynamic leaders, you will share working time together, but
also many moments of intercultural exchange with the local population and the volunteers
of the city.
In association with the locals, young and old, you will renovate a traditional wash
house a few steps away from the abbey. You will participate in the security of the site, the
creation of a path, laundry, and establishing a path between the wash house and Carmel, a
place on the path to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
You will be staying in tents near the worksite where you will have access
to a kitchen and bathroom.
Location: Moissac 80 km north of Toulouse, 30 km west of Montauban
Leisure activities: Outside of the worksite, you will discover the remarkable heritage of this
town, the abbey, and the canal. Walk along the path of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, on
the banks of the Tarn, you can enjoy the water and the beauty of the old stones. Swimming,
walks, and mingling with the other youths from the camp and Moissac will be an opportunity
to immerse yourself in this fruit and wine region.
