La Cité de Minerve, Minerve, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Between the Cevennes and Black Mountain, the city of Minerve rises on a rocky spur overlooking the gorge of Cesse and Brian. The natural bridges of the Cesse valley make it an exceptional geological site.

Bearing the imprint of hunter-gatherers of Prehistory, Minerva is best known for the siege she suffered in 1210 during the painful crusade against the Cathars.

Historic capital of Minervois, it is now one of the prestigious doors of the Regional Natural Park of Haut-Languedoc and is among the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”.

During a weekend or an extended stay, take the time to discover this land of history, taste AOC wines, appreciate the flavors of this land and meet those who live in the various events that punctuate the season.
