Access to the commuen is by the D303A which branches off the D3 west of the commune and passes through the commune east then south to join the D303 to La Crouzette south-east of the commune. It is a part of the Natural Regional Park of Pyrénées ariégeoises. The commune is mixed forest and farmland.[3][4]

The Grande Goutte stream forms the western border of the commune as it flows north to join Le Lens river north of the commune. Le Macaoude stream similarly forms the eastern border as it flows north to join Le Lens just north of the commune.

History[edit]

Barzac appears as Barzac on the 1750 Cassini Map[5] and the same on the 1790 version.[6]

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 36 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually and the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
