Minerve, Herault, Languedoc

The Guide Photo of the Week - March 7 1999

View from Minerve, Languedoc

Minerve - Gorge top village with Cathar history, Herault, Languedoc

The views from Minerve take one's breath away. This gorge top village with its Cathar history of martyrs and sieges, is a perfect place to visit even in winter. Perhaps it is even more thrilling with the rivers Cesse and Briant, rushing with water, sliding under cavenous natural bridges, deep below ones gaze. Above are trails and paths that literally cling to the steep sides of the valley

When in Minerve - go to Relais Chantovent Restaurant - and reserve a table on the terrace
