La Passerelle de Mazamet

Defy the void on La Passerelle de Mazamet in Hautpoul and stroll in this hilltop village. Want strong emotions? Climb to Hautpoul and take the metal footbridge suspended 70 meters above the valley of Arnette. Do you feel as she sways gently under your feet? Want a return in time? Stroll through the medieval streets where still floats the memory of the Cathars. Hautpoul is high and it gives goose bumps.
La Passerelle de Mazamet
At 70 meters above the ground, do not be dizzy. But alone, the exceptional view of the valley of the Arnette is worth taking his courage in both hands.

Mazamet sits in a natural valley, le Thoré, at 280 m altitude, between the two mountain ranges of the Montagnès Noire and the Monts de Lacune, both rising to 1,200 m. Considering its geography within SW France, it surprises many that both ranges are the furthest outpost of the Massif Central.

The mountains that surround Mazamet & its fast-flowing rivers, lend much to its development from a humble beginning to one of the most prosperous towns throughout France in the 19th century.

Evidence of early settlement in the area date back to the Magdalenian (10,000 BC). On the outskirts of Mazamet, near the village of Aiguefonde, traces of activity from this period was discovered in the cave of Lacalm. Later evidence from the Neolithic period is in the number of megalithic monuments, dotted around the landscape close to Mazamet...

Le Lac de Laprade
 
 
Randonnée Le Lac de Laprade - Les Martys
 
 
  Built in 1984, the dam consists of a dam 27 meters high and 117 meters wide, with a capacity of 9 million m3 serves many towns with drinking water. This 90-hectare lake is an ideal place to practice windsurfing and fishing. La ride, easy and very well explained, the overhangs on gratings. A 6 km loop (yellow markings) offers a complete tour of the lake. Easy and uneven, it can lie down by a variant which takes you into the undergrowth of the forest of the Loubatière. Laprade Lower Lake fed by the river "La Dure" was inaugurated in 1985 by the president François Mitterand. It stores about 9 million cubic meters of water. It is used for viewing supply of drinking water, irrigation of agricultural plains between Castelnaudary and Carcassonne and generate electricity through micro-power downstream of the dam. It also helps regulate the flow of rivers that depend on it, especially in the summer period. In summer the shady banks of Lake Laprade are frequented by many anglers taquiing the stud, the perch and sometimes brown trout, thr first inhabitants of the place....


 
 
Randonnée La Rivière de la Dure
 
 
Randonnée La Rivière de la Dure - Caudebronde
 
 
  Caudebronde is situated in southern France in the Aude department of Languedoc. In 2008 Aude was voted in the French press as the most desirable department in which to live. The village is in a gorge on the banks of the River Dure beneath the main N118 Route de Mazamet and the departmental D62 road runs through the village but is hardly ever used. It is almost equidistant between Carcassonne and Mazamet, each being about 23km distant, or a 25-minute drive away. The village lies at around 550m elevation on the southern slopes of the Montagne Noire, a much ignored area to the north of Carcassonne and the precursor to the Massif Central. The village has been described as one of the prettiest in the region. The surrounding area is a hillwalker's paradise and a very popular region for cyclists. The territory of Caudebronde had ever many slate quarries - the Lauzières. Slate is used on a large scale for roofing, in that it is strong and has thermal properties (protection against summer heat and the cold of the mountains), and the use of slate is very practical. Still a few "Lauzeurs" practice this craft which is often taught from father to son ... (The Lauzeron is an employee at the quarry. To edit masses large plates, delicate parts slate of several centimeters thick. Unfortunately, a technique which is deteriorating with time! Caudebronde, discrete...by its eccentric position of the road network, and yet so close. It remains a little secret village that everyone will make fun of well maintained alleys, beautiful landscaped gardens, a dominant bell tower and in first place the river la Dure. Here everything is in peaceful rest...

Musée
du Catharisme -
Maison des Mémoires
de Mazamet

Musée du Catharisme - Maison des Mémoires de Mazamet - Mazemet

Why an exhibition of Occitan Catharism in Mazamet? Catharism, dissident religion of the Christian faith, considered to be a heresy by the all-powerful Catholic Church, was condemned, and its adepts were persecuted. The Cathars were obliged to flee into remote areas and found refuge in the Montagne Noire : at the edge of the Aude Cathar Country. The Tarn side of this mountainous massif constituted a place of refuge and resistance for this religion. Hautpoul, the historic birthplace of Mazamet, ancient castrum (fortified village) perched on a rocky outcrop, served as a retreat during the period of the Inquisition. It was also one of the places of residence of the Cathar Archbishop of the diocese of Albi in the 13th century. This Medieval village is one of the rare vestiges of the Cathar time to be situated on the Tarn side of the Montagne Noire...
