Gorges de Caune-Pont - Termes

The Château de Termes is a ruined castle near the village of Termes in the Aude département of the Languedoc.

Built on a promontory it is defended on three sides by deep ravines. The ruins of the castle cover an area of 16.000m².

After about 30 minutes, at a ford over the Sou, cross the creek Nougairole (mean planted walnut).

The climb is steep, bear left, go under the rock of the Femna Prens.

View over the gorge "Caune Pont" and Sou Valley.

Delicate passage in the rocks. Continue to climb to reach a rocky outcrop promontory: view on the parade of gorges.

Step over a dizzying passage, the rock of Caune bridge overlooking a Neolithic settlement cave.
  Here now over 8 centuries, the hot breath of the revolt blew these lands Corbières, sun-drenched and fragrant scrubland. Side terms in the Aude, trails under the pines littered with old stone unknown revisit the history of the Cathars. At the foot of the village houses and Terms gingerbread color, the warbling song Sou quiet water en route to his destiny. By a bridge lined with old geraniums, such as pensioners know so well put in their windows, we crossed the river to begin the ascent of the hill overlooking the hamlet asleep. Rafts of green algae and fat laden pairs of spin dragonflies love to gorges de Caune-Pont, where the water decides to battle with the rock. The stream becomes torrent, agitated and impatient. Troubled by the fuss, dragonflies always mated fly playing a tightrope. The rock "Coyne Punt," a natural bridge between the great void gaping gorges and enigmatic a dark cave, saves the mess of vegetable tray Nitable rock. Boxwood, oaks, junipers and cysts surround the cliff a ruffled fur, maquis pervert who is constantly poking calves. Between puffs of thyme and lavender, cicadas fill the air with their chirping thundering. There is no agreement soon. Only a poet hard of hearing has been talk of "song of cicadas." The path soon plunges hillside towards terms leads to a venerable pile of ruins that tell a dark story of sieges and massacres...

Sentier Sainte Marie d’ Orbieu Abbey - Lagrasse
 
 
Hiking Officially designated ‘One Of The Most Beautiful Villages In France’, Lagrasse nestles at the confluence of two valleys in the stunning Corbières wine region of the South of France. The village is linked to the 8th century Benedictine abbey to which it owed its original prosperity by two graceful bridges spanning the river. Located in the commune of Lagrasse, the Benedictine monastery of the eighth century visited the monastic life in 2004 when it was bought by the community of the Canons Regular of the Mother of God. The abbey is the subject of a classification as historical monuments since July 23, 1923...

Gorges
du Termenet

Gorges du Termenet - Termes

Between the La Buade mill and Termes, the road, constructed in 1903, passes through two tunnels in the Gorges du Termenet cut by the Sou.
The steep walls of the Gorges consist of rocks of the middle and lower Devonian periods. In the centre a beautiful vein of red marble runs the height of the cliffs. The Gorges is in a protected area. South of Termes, upstream of the Saint Andrew chapel and still on the Sou, there is another protected natural site -the gorge of Coyne Pont. This also cuts through rock of the lower Devonian period. The middle section forms a bowl and in part of the river bed a jumble of travertine rocks indicates a collapsed natural bridge. (Coyne Pont means "the cave bridge" in Occitan)...

Château Villerouge-Termenès

Château Villerouge-Termenès - Villerouge-Termenes

In the center of the village of Villerouge, in the Langedouc region of France, is the ancient castle of Termenes. The Villerouge-Termenes castle is known as the home of the last known Cathar Prefect Guilhem Belibasate, who was burned at the stake during the Catholic crusades of the 13th century. The Albigensian Crusades, as they are known, were ordered by Pope Innocent III. During those crusades, thousands of Cathars were burned at the stake. In the city of Beziers alone, thousands were killed. History records the infamous words of Arnaud Amaury, when asked whether to kill both Catholics and Cathars, responded: "Kill them all; God will recognize his own". He later reported to Pope Innocent III that "neither age, nor sex, nor status had been spared, and nearly twenty thousand people perished." This should be a lesson to everyone regarding the dangers of religious fanaticism...
