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...
  Today these gorges are operated by tourism. Two campsites coexist next to the pumping station, have access to "tracks" (if you can call them that space plane covered with pebbles) through a slab. In summer there is a crowd: tourists from their tents at campsites cotoient both those of the plain came for the fresh and the Catalans, who know this place.

Pyrénées-Orientales - D 39 / D 12

The mountainous nature of the landscape gives rise to a number of attractive gorges like Gouleyrous shown here and a wide variety of others slightly further afield. Gouleyrous is a very popular area for swimming in the Summer....

Château d'Aguilar

Château d'Aguilar - Tuchan

Aguilar Castle stands on a rocky hillock at the foot of the prestigious Haut Fitou vineyard. In 1210 it was invaded and occupied by Simon de Montfort, whose soldiers took and held the owner Raymond de Termes in prison in Carcassonne. Militarily, the castle lay dormant for the next 30 years, until Raymond's son Olivier de Termes took back the castle in the brief revolt against the young viscount Trencavel against the crusaders. Aguilar became the refuge of faidits, Cathar knights and lords dispossessed of their own strongholds. Since 1949, it has been listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture. Today it is in poor condition, and can be sited by the public. The design of the castle reflects evolving military thinking of the late Middle Ages. It consists of an inner keep built in the 12th century, surrounded by an outer pentagonal fortification from the 13th century. It is oriented so that its point guards the side most vulnerable to attackers. The keep and the inner hexagonal fortification is flanked at each corner by semi-circular guard towers, each with archery outlooks...

Tuchan

Tuchan

Tuchan lies in a plain and bordered to the west by Mont Tauch which at 900 meters dominates the town. It has always been productive but whereas you might at one time have seen flocks of sheep or goats wandering around and cereals being cultivated you can now only see varieties of vines like syrah, carignan, grenache, muscat all growing in orderly rows. The town lives off the grape and its current relative prosperity is due to the success of Fitou wine and the successful marketing by the Mont Tauch Co-operative. Tuchan has the atmosphere of a border town with Mont Tauch rising bleakly to the west and the Tramantane wind blowing strongly through the narrow streets. The old border between France and Aragon, and Spain, guarded by the Châteaux of Queribus and Peyrepertuse is only a few kilometres away. The town and its surrounding area has been lived in and fought over for a very long time. In the nearby village of Tauteval, a skeleton of 400,000 years old was found. At Château Nouvelles, 2 kilometres, to the north (where very good Fitou wine can be bought) an old roman road, the via Mercadaria, passes close by. The Romans were here mining the iron, gold, silver and lead. Narbonne, a major Roman port on the Mediterranean coast, now the sous-prefecture for the Aude, is 45 kilometres away...
