An interesting fact about Puymirol ~ A chapter in the 100 year war and a story about a fat pig ~ At the time, Puymirol was a fortified town, besieged by the English. The people in town were worried as they could see the hostile soldiers eagerly waiting for them to surrender. After several days the people of Puymirol had not really realized that they were running short of food, but before they started to starve, they decided to give it one last try. the idea was to feed a pig with all the cereal yield of the year that was still stored in the granaries. Once the pig was well-fattened up, they threw it over the battlements. When the English soldiers saw such a fat pig tumbling down by their feet, they thought that the people of Puymirol still had a lot of food left, which would allow them to keep on resisting for a long time... Then, the assailants, feeling suddenly disheartened, raised the siege. The people of Puymirol, who had been sure to die, had defeated the English invaders without fighting owing to this trick of the fat pig.
