cassagnoles



- Between garrigues with fragrant plants and chestnuts, elaborate delicious honeys





In the extreme north-west of the canton, with 80 inhabitants on 2 454 hectares, Cassagnoles culminates at 1 012 m at the greenhouse of Alaric. In contact with the departments of Aude and Tarn, in the heart of the Black Mountain, it is included in the Regional Natural Park of Haut-Languedoc. There were 430 inhabitants in 1880.

A few kilometers south of Cassagnoles is a curiosity that attracts each year curious and skeptical. At a place called Lauriole, a road seems to go up as it goes down ... or vice versa! This "descending hill" is indicated by the sign "Curiosité de Lauriole". A special configuration of the surrounding terrain creates an optical illusion. The result is very curious. You can experiment with a ball, a bottle, or a car in neutral. The observed sense of descent (by letting down a cylindrical or spherical object for example) corresponds to the direction determined by a level reading.

The dolmens of the Bouyssière and the Four and the sixteenth century church remain curiosities not to be missed.

Cassagnoles owes its name to the cassan (oak) + suffix iol (place, clearing) 1290.
On the foothills of the Montagne Noire, the Fontgassière fountain, near the Salette pass, marks the meeting point between three departments: Hérault, Aude and Tarn. Fresh water
descends from the mountains and sprinkles many vegetable and flower gardens ...
It is also in Cassagnoles that we find the highest vineyards of Minervois.

From the castle, destroyed by the English attacks in the fourteenth century, remain some vestiges whose tower, turned into a campanile. Here, on this schistous land which benefits from a Mediterranean and oceanic climate, between garrigue with odoriferous plants and chestnut trees, elaborate delicious honeys.

Fun and educational, the House of Bee, a place dedicated exclusively to the knowledge of this insect, will reveal all the secrets of beekeeping.
