Since the 2000th and the beginning of the XNUMXth century, the Château d'Auriac guards the southern entrance to Termenès, between the Orbieu valley and the Verdouble valley. The towers and main building (XNUMXth century) testify to a "castle life" contrasting with the poverty of the town which has never been very populated. This luxury is no doubt attributable to the income from the mines. The habitats of this village are scattered in farms and hamlets. The natural areas offer a wide variety of landscapes and are home to Natura XNUMX protected areas, populated by rare plant and floral species. In the shadow of the castle of Auriac, the hike "Le Silence est d'or" will make you discover the nuggets of its territory: minerals, fauna, flora...
