La Caunette

caunette




The old elm of Sully is now in place in front of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption -




The Caunette, nestled against a steep cliff cornice 142 meters above sea level, has 330 Caunettois (es) in its walls. Its name comes from the pre-Indo-European "cauna", which means cave.
Between Cesse at its foot and the cliff which surmounts it, La Caunette ds unfolds all in length facing south. The Romanesque church of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption overlooks the river.
The old village, La Carambelle, is guarded by a medieval gate surmounted by machicolations. Inside, steep streets lead to old troglodyte dwellings. The castle of Pardailhan, erected on the square, dates from the seventeenth century.
A high brick chimney placed at the entrance of the town underlines the history of lignite mining until the 1950s.

- History -
Settled since Prehistoric times on the banks of the Cesse, La Caunette takes its name from the caves that sheltered its first inhabitants (cauneta, cauno denotes a pit intended for habitation).
Becoming in the Middle Ages defense outpost of the castle of the lords of Minerva, like most castles of the surrounding villages, there are still vestiges of what was the fortified town.
Past the fortified medieval gate in the shape of a square tower surmounted by machicolation and loopholes, we enter the historic heart, called the Carambelle, in other words the "beautiful stones", whose houses were grouped at the foot of the castle initial.
