armoirie village riols

         - A historic break on the Hérault-Tarn link -

The commune of Riols is between Saint Pons de Thomières and Olargues; it extends along the Jaur valley.

Its particularity is to count a communal territory much larger than its neighbors. The other particularity of Riols is the appearance in 2004 of the first wind turbine of the foothills in the heart of the forest, on the heights of Serre Longue. It rises to 728 m, 4 km from the Rodomouls pass, and dominates the village of Riols and the Jaur valley. The height of the mast is 50 meters.

Another emblematic place, the Rodomoul Pass, is a historic break on the Hérault-Tarn link. The Chapel Notre-Dame-de-Trédos, emblematic as well as majestic, deserves the hike that leads to its doors.

On either side of the Jaur Valley, from Lake Vezoles to the old Ardouane abbey of the 19th century, this very extensive town has many hiking trails to reach the Monts du Somail. The magnificent bridge of Banasse, on the Jaur, as well as the church of Saint-Pierre-et-Paul or the alignments of the Low street, the main artery, testify to the prosperity of the textile activity, in particular cloth, from the sixteenth century.

From the village, a small road leads to the Cabarétou pass, a real challenge for sports cyclists !!! The Green Way Passa Païs invites the followers of the soft journeys to the reverie ...

 - Un peu d'histoire -
The history of Riols is very closely linked to Saint-Pons-de-Thomières: the charter of foundation of the abbey, in 936, mentions the donation made to the monastery by Raymond Pons, count of Toulouse, lands of Tarbouriech, Les Coumayres, Condades, Cassillac, and Rieulets.
In 940, the archbishop of Narbonne yielded to the abbot of Saint-Pons the churches of Saint-Pierre-de-Riols and Notre-Dame-de-Tredos.
The entire territory of Riols eventually forms a seigneury belonging to the abbey of Saint-Pons.
During the formation of the diocese of Saint-Pons in 1318, the abbot became bishop and the monks formed the chapter of the cathedral.
The revenues of the abbey are then separated: in Riols, the chapter retains the seigniorial rights on the lands of the Garrigues, including the mazades of Begot, Condades, Aupigno, Roulio, Marso, Cassillac, while the bishop keeps the rest of the lordship. At the Revolution, the few goods of the clergy and emigrants are sold. In the 19th century, Riols with more than 2000 inhabitants, became a small industrial center, with more than a dozen factories of woolen sheets and spinning mills.
