Randonnée Le Somail - Saint-Nazaire-d'Aude

A beautiful signposted walking tour in and around Le Somail, that takes in all the sights

Le Somail is a large village that exists thanks to the Canal du Midi. This port was built as a stop for the trade and immediately enjoyed a great prosperity. Today it is one of the most beautiful spots of the Canal du Midi, with la Chapelle, le Pont, la Maison d'Éclusier and much entertainment that it has inspired and attracted many artists.
Randonnée Le Somail - Saint-Nazaire-d'Aude
We had been told about it and had seen a photo of the pretty stone bridge spanning the Canal du Midi. And it is when we reach the banks and advance toward the heart, the port, that we understand the wonder in the eyes who had insisted we come here.

Here everything stops suddenly, everything comes to a halt on arrival as if the Canal du Midi would immediately hypnotize us into taking on its rhythm, serene, calm.

The place is calm and has been since its construction 300 years ago, at the same time as the Canal du Midi. At the time it served as a “staging-post”, an inevitable stop on the long and tiring trips of the day.
   Its lodgings welcomed all the travellers passing through and is still there, next to the stone bridge and a chapel of the same age. The place already has some visitors on this early spring day, all of them in the same state of mind as that of the canal, that of the lapping of the river boats in the water and the little boats chartered by the first tourists, that of strolls along the towpaths.

Pretty terraces call to us to spend a contemplative moment, to relax. "It's beautiful here," said the gentleman with a hat sitting for the past hour on the bridge. Happy inhabitant of this place out of time, his smile says a lot about the benefits of this delicious atmosphere. We are on foot and in need of nothing else to discover the incredible shop for old books and never leave, or escape along the canal. We feel very well, like we’re on an island, we have absorbed the rhythm and we would like to wander until evening and enjoy the gentle air.

The icehouse: built after 1684, it was used to store in winter and to store until the summer, large blocks of ice coming from the Montagne Noire, which were stored deeply after isolating them with straw.

Le pont en dos d'âne: this bridge called "de Riquet" or "du Somail" is remarkable for its basket vault, characteristic of this time of the inauguration of the Canal du Midi.

La chapelle: erected between 1684 and 1693, was enlarged in 1842. It could accommodate the 180 inhabitants of Somail, the bosses and crews stationed in the port and the inhabitants of the surrounding countryside. A mass was said at the arrival and departure of each bark of post. At present, a Mass is celebrated every Friday.

Oppidum d'Ensérune - Nissan-lez-Ensérune

The Oppidum d'Enserune is an ancient hill-town (or Oppidum) near the village of Nissan-lez-Enserune, France located between Béziers and Narbonne close to the RN9 and Canal du Midi. Location: The settlement was occupied without interruption between the 6th Century BC and 1st Century AD, it's location being chosen presumably because it was a hill with good views over the coastal plain, being close to the Roman road Via Domitia, the Montady lake, and fertile agricultural land below. Below the Oppidum was the swamp of Montady, (centred on), which is now wedge shaped fields separated by irrigation ditches that converge in the centre. In the 13th century, the swamp was drained; the ditches allowed water to flow to the center of the circular depression, from which it was conveyed through underground pipes several kilometers to the south. The drainage is still functional and remains in use. There is a museum on the site which offers a display of some of the finds on the site, as well as giving more information about the fort and the field system...

Narbonne

Narbonne

Narbonne, France is a charming small city in the Languedoc, featuring wonderful historic attractions as well as a relaxing beach along the Mediterranean. The heart of Narbonne, once a key port for the Roman Empire, is the dramatic Place de l'Hotel de Ville. Also be sure to stroll through the village’s old town, where you can’t miss the main attraction: Cathedrale Saint-Just. The most dominant building in this neighborhood, the 13th century church connects to the Palais des Archevêques, which has an ornately carved 130-meter keep. The Horreum, the only significant ancient Roman relic in the city, is an intricate underground series of hallways and tunnels which is believed to have been used for grain storage. Open year-round, it closes Mondays from October through May. Also of interest is the Musee de Telephone, with exhibits on the history of communications, including telegraphs and, of course, the telephone. Be sure to visit Narbonne Plage (beach), which you can reach from the train station and several points in central Narbonne through the 'TUN' bus line. The beach area features boutiques and outdoor cafés...
