Saint Volusien
The fictional town of Saint Volusien is based on the real town of Foix.

The founding, in 849, of the Abbey Saint-Volusien allowed the development of urban living in the tenth century to the twelfth century.

Geography
Saint Volusien is situated at the confluence of the Ari├Ęge and Arget rivers in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The town skyline is dominated by the half-finished castle being built on the ruins of an old Roman fort.
