Bonnac is a commune in the Ariège department of southwestern France. It lies between the altitudes of 237 and 413 m. The village currently lies at the bottom of a hill but was previously located on the hill as evidence by remains of foundations. A castle, now ruined, lay on top of the hill and was itself built on top of Roman foundations. The most notable building is the Eglise Saint-Pierre which dates to the 12th century and houses a baptismal font dating back to the early Romanesque era.
