armoirie village velieux

    - A village that revives the ancestral activity of agriculture -

South of the Pays Saint Ponais, 18km from Saint-Pons, on the edge of the Minervois, this village nestled in its valley at 450 m altitude perpetuates its agricultural vocation by a harvest festival where you can relive the Ancestral work of the reapers, the assembly of the gerbiers, the threshing, then participate in the traditional country meal.

If you visit the small Romanesque church, do not be surprised by the African-style Christ adorning it. A local child, Jean-Rémi Bessieux, was the first bishop of Gabon. A fresco evokes his mission on African soil.

Not far from the wild "canyons" of Brian in the Upper Minervois, nestles this paradise of hikers and fishermen ... The village perpetuates its agricultural traditions, under the protection of the Romanesque church of Saint Martin.

- Un peu d'histoire - 

The history of Vélieux once depended on that of the city of Minerve. Vélieux belonged to the Chatellenie de Minerve until the end of the Ancien Régime.
After that, the Marquis de Thézan-Poujol, descendant of Mgr de Fleyres is lord of Minerve, Vélieux, Rieussec and Boisset. But having no land, the inhabitants are represented by consuls.
In 1789, Vélieux has 23 fires, about 120 inhabitants.
Pierre Bessieux and Barthélémy Tresor are the last two consuls representing the village community. It is Bessieux who is designated on March 13, 1789 in the "place intended to hold the assemblies" in order to represent Vélieux in Carcassonne for the election of the deputies of the Third-State.

From this family came several mayors of the town in the 19th and 20th century, and especially Jean Remi Bessieux (1803-1876), a missionary in Central Africa.
