Abbaye d'Alet-les-Bains

Abbaye Sainte-Marie d'Alet (more commonly known as the Abbey of Alet les Bains), is situated between the Aude river and the Pyrenees mountains in the heart of Cathar country.
The abbey is considered by some to be the most beautiful ruin in France.
Abbaye d'Alet-les-Bains
To see:
Resplendent in its mountainside setting, the ruined abbey is characterized by warm colors that soak up the sun.
Of the original abbey, remains of two towers can still be seen, St. Michael's Tower (north) and Notre-Dame Tower (south).
The small chancel is well-preserved. The pillar capitals are ornately decorated with vegetation and geometric patterns.
  To the north of the church is the Romanesque chapter house, with interesting motifs on its capitals.

Other attractions of the town of Alet-les-Bains include a natural spa and medieval houses, including one in which Nostradamus may have lived.
Abbaye d'Alet-les-Bains
Founded circa 813 AD and consecrated to the Virgin Mary, the monks of the abbey adopted the Benedictine rule. The abbey was damaged by the attacks of the count of Carcassone in the 11th century, but survived due to its relics of the True Cross which attracted pilgrims. Repair and further construction were undertaken in the latter 12th century, including the addition of defensive walls and trenches in 1197.

In 1318, became a cathedral. A Gothic choir was added. In 1577, the abbey was destroyed by Protestants during the Wars of Religion. It was never completely rebuilt, and what remained of the abbey was further destroyed in 1792.

Quillan

Quillan

At 300m above sea level, in the South of the Aude department, Quillan is the hub of Cathar Country. Surrounded by a circle of mountains, the first settlement in 781AD was on the right bank of the river. This town is the ideal place to practise open air sports and as a base to discover the Cathar heritage. Come to appreciate the charms of this historical area: The Roman church Notre-Dame (12th century), military fortress/ castle (13th century), mansions, the former Turkish baths which has been refurbished to house the Tourist office... There are many very beautiful natural sites to be discovered close to Quillan too: the Pierre-Lys GOrge, St Georges's Gorge, The Gorge of Galamus with it's hermitage half way down the side of the deep gorge, Cathars Castles, caves and grottes...


Rennes les Bains

Rennes les Bains

In the early days in the Corbières at Rennes-les-Bains, when people were converted they were baptised. This was an essential major ceremony of the new Christianity and had the character of a covenant with God. Baptism washed away sin so one could begin a new life in which salvation and personal enlightenment were assured. Baptisms were whole body immersions and Mary was authorised to perform baptisms, unlike most women of the time. . . . complete immersion, including the hair, was the norm and among the observers, fellow Christians waiting to welcome the newcomer to the fold, one of them was appointed to ensure this complete immersion. The newcomer had to be completely naked. Then he or she was welcomed lovingly, with hugs and kisses, into the new Christian community. Where, 2,000 years ago in the region of Rennes-les-Bains, were there suitable places for whole body baptism? Just outside the town is the Fontaine d'Amours – lover's spring. If you bathe there together, your love will last forever. It's the tiniest mental leap here, from romantic love to everlasting and spiritual love. Did this legend come from the baptism, done in the new loving religion, that took place there, after which people hugged and kissed?..

Château des Ducs
de Joyeuses

Château des Ducs de Joyeuses - Couiza



This listed 16th century chateau is located on extensive grounds on the banks of the River Aude. The ancient fortress-turned-hotel subtly blends medieval tradition with modern confort - and it has an excellent restaurant too (it is important that you reserve a table in advance). The house was built by Jean de Joyeuse, first Governor of Narbonne and Lieutenant General in Languedoc, between 1540 and 1550, and his son, Guillaume III assumed the job of completing this magnificant chateau after he died. With a beautiful courtyard where one can dine in the summer months, the castle is a very special place to stay. With a swimming pool and tennis court, the hotel is a perfect base to combine relaxation with good food. Close to Cathares and 30 km to Carcassonne, there many cathedrals and historic monuments to visit. The Chateau does not have an elevator, so if you have a problem with stairs this may not be the best choice for you....

Saint-Polycarpe

Abbaye de Saint-Polycarpe

Saint Polycarp (Saint Policarpi in Occitan), has 165 inhabitants (census 2009), which are called Saint-Polycarpiens. The village of Saint-Polycarpe is located on the Meridian Green, the Paris Meridian. The Saint-Polycarpe brook crosses the tributary of the Aude 7 km from Limoux, 8 km from Saint-Hilaire, 24 km from Carcassonne, 31 km from Mouthoumet and 42 km from Lagrasse. The name of Saint Polycarp given to the abbey will also become the name of the village, the name of the primitive village being Rivograndi: Rieugrand. This patronage of Saint Polycarp suggests that the abbey held relics of the saint of Asia Minor, where he was born in the late 1st century AD. Bishop of Smyrna, today Izmir in Turkey, this church father was martyred in 155 under Marcus Aurelius, accused of atheism because he refuses to sacrifice to the gods officials, among which is the emperor. Condemned to the stake but miraculously spared by the flames, he then stabbed...


Restaurant
Le Carnotzet

Restaurant Le Carnotzet - Couiza



This restaurant is nestled at the foot of Rennes le Chateau and bathes the mystery of Abbé Saunière. They offer all their passions with gourmet foods, a mixture of authentic cuisine and local gourmet cuisine. Actually like the Chef! ! Alain Ibert-Jorge . Rich in the kitchen of these origins, it also acquired its gourmet cuisine during his many years in Paris. It is not uncommon in Veronique and Franck , the seafood gratin lobster sauce Béarnaise Garbure borders on the space of a weekend on their slates suggestions. But do not forget what has served as an alibi the decoration of this place "a Savoyard chalet" the inevitable "specialties Savoyarde" squeegees , tartiflettes , melted and reblochonnade....
