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...
  Specialities

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.

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....

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

De Corbières is een van de wildste gebieden van Frankrijk met een van de laagste bevolkingsdichtheid. Het is schilderachtig met wijnbouwgebieden afgewisseld met garrigues en bergachtige landschap. Het ligt voornamelijk in het departement Aude en deels in het departement Pyrénées-Orientales. De rivier de Aude grenst aan de Corbières in het westen en noorden. In het zuiden grenst het aan de rivier de Agly en ten oosten aan de Middellandse Zee. De Corbières ontleent zijn naam aan een samensmelting van "cor" een pre-Keltische woord voor "rock" en "Berre" van de rivier de Berre, die door Durban loopt. Het oostelijk deel van de Corbières met zijn Etangs, grenst aan de de Middellandse Zee en wordt ook wel de Corbières Maritimes genoemd. Het heeft zijn eigen kenmerkende klimaat en de karakteristieke vegetatie bekend als thermomediterraan vegetatie...


Muscats du Languedoc

A.O.C. Muscats du Languedoc

Muscat de Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic vins doux naturels from a relatively large area of Roussillon, in southern France, covering a total of 99 communes, and the majority of the Pyrenees-Orientales administrative departement. It is the largest single sweet wine appellation in France. Muscat de Rivesaltes wines are made predominantly from Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains and Muscat d'Alexandrie in varying ratios, according to the style desired by the individual producer. Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains is used to bring aromas of exotic and citrus fruits while Muscat d'Alexandrie brings a deeper bouquet of white flowers and ripe stone fruit. Collectively the wines show aromas of peach, lemon, mango and occasionally fresher, herbaceous notes like mint. These aromas all change with ageing, (which take place mostly in the bottle to preserve the fresher aromas) and the wines take on aromas of honey and baked stone fruits...

Forteresse
de Salses

Forteresse de Salses - Salses-le-Château

This fortress was built between 1497 and 1504 on the order of Ferdinand the Catholic, King of Aragon, to keep France out of the Roussillon region. It was intended to replace the square castle with 27 metre sides located on a nearby peak. This small fortification was ill adapted to the art of warfare as it had developed at the end of the 15th century when metal ball artillery came into use. Designed by Francisco Ramiro Lopez, the king’s first artilleryman, the fortress of Salses is a masterpiece of military architecture, a notable example of the transition from medieval château (the fortress has a keep and round towers framing long curtains) to modern fortress (it is strictly geometrical with deep foundations). The property of the French State since 1930, the fortress of Salses is managed by the Centre des monuments nationaux, which opens the monument to the public. Some 100,000 people visit the fortress every year....
