Château Prat-Majou-Gay - Laure-Minervois
In the 12th century, Laure Minervois belonged to the monastery of Caunes. Its importance comes from the richness of its vineyard, surrounded by fortifications. Former royal city with fortified entrances, its architectural heritage is dense: the Portail Neuf tower, ancient walls, a Roman mausoleum where a general was buried, the dolmen of Saint-Eugène (1800 BC), the Ravelin fountain, a medieval well restored in the 19th century, the Gothic church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste, the crucifix, a vault built under the ruins of a former chapel. In the scrubland, a "Sentier des capitelles" - small dry-stone buildings - has been laid out, allowing visitors to discover around thirty dry-stone shelters built in the plots of land resulting from the sale of the former communal areas to private individuals from 1813 onwards and cultivated with vines and cereals. Today, these huts can be found in the garrigue or under the pine, oak and cypress woods planted in the 19th and 20th centuries after the gradual abandonment of crops. The total number of capitelles is between 150 and 200. If you don't want to walk, please note that at the exit of the village towards Saint-Frichoux, at the Domaine Vignalet, Mr Labadie, winemaker, coachman and storyteller, proposes to show you the vineyard and the capitelles in a horse-drawn carriage.

Les Carrières et
le Marbre - Caunes-Minervois

Les Carrières et le Marbre - Caunes-Minervois

Caunes-Minervois is also the world capital of red marble: quarried since Roman times, this special marble has been used in the adornment of many very beautiful palaces and public buildings. The Carrière du Roy ("Les Carrières et le Marbre de Caunes Minervois"): Appreciated by the Romans (traces have been found in villas in the Minervois and in Spain and also in the Grand Mosque at Cardove) and deployed by medieval sculptors (pre-Romanesque capitals in the abbey and columns at Fontroide), the quarrying of red marble from Caunes was taken over by a sculptor from the Genoese Riviera around 1615.... Les Carrières et le Marbre - Caunes-Minervois With the development of trade between Carrara (with its white marble) and Caunes, lustrous marble became the material of choice for columns and altarpieces in religious buildings in the Midi. From 1666 marble companies were ordering red “incarnat” and blue “turquin” marble for sculptures at Versailles. The opening of the Canal du Midi in 1681 facilitated transport to the Garonne, thence by sea from Bordeaux to Le Havre and onwards up the Seine to Paris. A roadway was built by the États du Languedoc to access the port of Puichéric. A royal decree of 1770 granted monopoly of the marble to the monarch and Louis XIV claimed for himself the quarry of Malecasse (nowadays a protected site). Caunes marble features in the most remarkable royal and imperial monuments from Louis XIV to Napoleon III: Fontainebleau, Versailles, Marly, the Louvre, the Invalides, the Carrousel, the Opera...
