Sentier Notre Dame de Carla 2 - Lagrasse

Officially ’one of the most beautiful villages in France’, Lagrasse is a small town nestled at the confluence of two valleys, and linked to the Benedictine abbey to which it owed its original prosperity by two graceful bridges spanning the river Orbieu.

It is said that a peasant plowing his field there, found a statue of the Virgin. Depositing the village and returning to work his plot, he miraculously found the same figure. A chapel was built to sanctify this miracle and attested in the twelfth century.

The devotion to Notre Dame de Carla remains from the Val de Dagne pilgrims who make the climb up the hill twice a year (the first Sunday of May and early September). Facing the chapel, the sheep was restored in 2006 at the initiative of an association "Amis de Notre Dame de Carla" and the support of local authorities. A Calvary erected on top of the hill, overlooking the gorge Alsou between the hills and the shell until Lauza Lacamp tray.
The cross Wrought iron is present in the work of an ironworker from Rieux en Val in 1953.

Between Carcassonne and Narbonne, Lagrasse is set in the Orbieu valley, in the Corbieres massif. The Orbieu river separates the abbey, rising over the left bank, from the village which spreads along the right bank and is listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France. The foundation charter of the Benedictine Abbey of Sainte Marie de l'Orbieu dates from the end of the 8th century, even if another building probably existed on the site before the Carolingian period. A 13th century manuscript, Philomena's legend, tells the story of the legendary foundation of this abbey. The monastery rapidly became prosperous, its lands used to spread as far as Spain during the 9th and 10th centuries. The political power of the Abbey was essentially revealed during the Crusade against the Abligensians : Benoît d'Aligan, Abbot of Lagrasse from 1224 to 1230, was often a mediator between the occupying and the occupied forces. It was he who finally obtained Carcassonne's submission to the king of France (1226). Of all the important abbots of Lagrasse, it is necessary to mention the reforming Abbot Auger de Gogenx, from 1279 to 1309, who carried out the construction of most of the medieval parts of the abbey. After enduring the troubled times of the 14th century, the Abbey became an important artistic centre during the 15th century under the authority of Abbot Pierre d'Abzac de la Douze. The commendam of 1502 and then the arrival of a Saint-Maur congregation in 1662 also encouraged intellectual activity. During the 18th century, Abbot Armand Bazin de Bezons instigated a new building period with the construction of the abbey palace and the cloister. At the French Revolution, the Abbey was sold in 2 parts, a separation that still exists today..

Château Borde-Rouge - Lagrasse
 
 
A.O.C. CorbièresThe vineyard of Château Borde-Rouge is one of the most picturesque geographies of the area .It is a natural amphitheater open to the sky, as the hand of God. At the heart of the circus, the castle, and on the steep hillsides of Mount Villebersan, the rows of vines that take possession of the red earth and form an illuminated green setting to the buildings of the castle and its timeless charm turret. White rocky ridge, ocher earth tones and hundred-year-old pines sculpted by the wind: it is an enchanting panorama that can be admired from afar when arriving by the road of the Vins des Corbières. On these medieval lands molded by beauty, still haunted by the Cathar tragedy, we invite you to a real stroll in the time between historic patrimony and contemporary creation. The turbulent history of Château Borde Rouge is rooted to the origins of our civilization. Roman occupation, Saracen tornado and work of the Benedictines marked the fate of Borde Rouge...
