Pyrénées-Orientales - D 2 

The "Organs" located north of Ille sur Tet, on the left bank of the river, are precisely what geographers call "Badlands" and "fairy chimneys.
They result from a sculpture by running water - the erosion - of rocks on the whole very little resistance. It is first necessary to learn to know them better, so we can then consider the basic stages of their implementation: first the introduction of materials in which they were in. stérieurement cut, then cut and shaping their forms we know and ad mirons today.
The appearance of the "Organ" can only be understood in a warm climate where heavy rains fall down brutally on sloping areas. The erosive force of running water is at times considerable, especially as the rock material is easy to scour. The Gully erosion is particularly fast and can be compared to a "kerf" that leaves both sides of the vertical slopes. The rain has little effect on them, precisely because of their verticality that protects them from the impact of raindrops and runoff. Erosion is where the water flows, in the ravines. It tears easily clays, sands and pebbles. Sometimes, the stream erodes the base of walls crumbling in installments according crack preparation Rees intense summer desiccation. Here and there, "hats" hard rocks - layers of pebbles or consolidated with large boulders - arming areas that are then better protected. They dominate the rest of the badlands, as Matte Roudoune: it is exactly what the geographical graphs called hoodoos. Moreover, a network of narrow ridges meanders between deep valleys dissected...

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Muscats du Languedoc

A.O.C. Muscats du Languedoc

Muscat de Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic vins doux naturels from a relatively large area of Roussillon, in southern France, covering a total of 99 communes, and the majority of the Pyrenees-Orientales administrative departement. It is the largest single sweet wine appellation in France. Muscat de Rivesaltes wines are made predominantly from Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains and Muscat d'Alexandrie in varying ratios, according to the style desired by the individual producer. Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains is used to bring aromas of exotic and citrus fruits while Muscat d'Alexandrie brings a deeper bouquet of white flowers and ripe stone fruit. Collectively the wines show aromas of peach, lemon, mango and occasionally fresher, herbaceous notes like mint. These aromas all change with ageing, (which take place mostly in the bottle to preserve the fresher aromas) and the wines take on aromas of honey and baked stone fruits...

Gorges
de Gouleyrous

Gorges de Gouleyrous - Tautavel

Gouleyrous gorges are the gorges north of Tautavel and is accessed by taking Highway Vingrau and turning north (indicated). They are the distinction of being overlooked by the Arago Cave, the famous cave where they found the skeletal remains of the oldest European (450,000 years). The gorge was carved by the Verdouble, which takes its birth in the Aude and passes Tautavel before joining Agly. They have a length of about a hundred meters and dominates the Verdouble at least 50m. The river has shaped the rocks so impressive, they are eroded, sometimes hollow, without sharp edges. The Verdouble flows constantly running up against a bank to the other, forming small eddies and gives "pots", the round hollows in stones larger or smaller. The cliffs are vertical, they serve as support for climbers in the region. This spot is part of climbing a essemble site of the same kind and which is designated under the generic name of " Cliffs of Vingrau ", although some of these sites are not in this village. Few shallow caves were dug into the cliff, they are only accessible by climbing precisely....

Collioure

Collioure

Collioure is an extremely popular tourist destination that only has one road in and out. So if you decide to visit in the peak hoilday season i.e. July and August then expect some queueing and difficulty parking. So of course visiting at other times of the year would be preferable, especially say June or September; far less manic and still a very good chance of some great weather. That said, if your only chance of visiting Collioure is July or August, then its still worth it. There is a good reason that all the Fauve artists made it their meeting place. Artists such as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, André Derain, Georges Braque, Othon Friesz, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Tsuguharu Fujita have all been inspired by Collioure's royal castle, medieval streets and its lighthouse converted into the church of Notre-Dame-des-Anges. Plus the clarity of the blue skies and sea have to be seen to be believed. For the tourist, you can wander down to the sea front and find a little cafe or restaurant that practically extends itself onto the little pebble beach and just sit down for the most wonderful lunch of fresh fish or seafood accompanied by a glass or two of the local vino, Collioure AOC being one of the smallest vignards in France . In a place like Collioure it would almost be rude not to. After lunch you can stroll over to the beach and just sit and watch the world go by, boats going in and out of the port and like I said after lunch has been digested taking a boat trip out along the coastline is a very nice way to while away a couple more hours. Of course there is a pretty interesting history to discover in Collioure, the Château Royal de Collioure and the Fort Saint-Elme stronghold being two of the most prominent fortifications. The fortifications exist mainly because of the toing and froing of the Spanish and the French as they struggled over the occupation of the Catalan regions. The Spanish lost Collioure back to the French for the last time in 1794.
