Most likely, Bram is the oldest village in the area with vestiges dating back 110 years B.C.

Bram is a picturesque, circular village built around its XIIIth century church in a typical Lauragais architecture.
Today only the Saint-Julien and Sainte-Basilisse churches remains .
In 1194, its fortress was destroyed during the Albigensian crusade and only few vestiges can be seen today.
Walter Spangherro, famous Rugdby player and his brother Laurent were both natives of Bram and they succeded in marketing the Cassoulet de Castelnaudary all over the world.

In the past, Bram was an important port built to suit the needs of shipping : a tow path on one side and a mooring quay for boats on the other.
