Sites and monuments
In 1270, the Château de Miramont was bequeathed after the death of Mathe de Bigorre-Mâtas to one of his daughters, Marguerite.
In the 17th Century, it became the refuge of the poet Cyprian Despourrins whose mother was Gabrielle de Miramont. The castle was then bought by Bernard Abadie-Gaye, an inhabitant of Sazos (near Luz-Saint-Sauveur). It was then sold by a descendant of this family, Célestin Carrere, son of Louise Abadie-Gaye, in 1914.
The château was leter inhabited by Dr. Jean François Calot (1861-1944), a surgeon who advanced orthopaedic surgery preferring conservative treatments to the systematic amputations. He spent his entire career from 1890 at Berck and he retired to the Château de Miramont.
