This ancient Roman spa resort derives its origin from the Latin toponym ulmus, the elms. The village was devastated twice between the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries: the first time during the Crusade against the Albigenses and the second, during the rides of the Black Prince. Place of passage of tin in the XNUMXrd century BC, on the border between Corbières and Minervois, Homps was one of the places of stages of the Roman road then later of the pilgrims who borrowed the Camin Romieu towards Santiago de Compostela. An important site for the transport of wine by the Canal du Midi, the village lives to the rhythm of its port and its yachtsmen. Place of relaxation, it is bordered by the Aude and the lake of Jouarres.
Leaving from the harbor master's office on the quay of the coopers, the "Discovery Trail" allows you to discover the heritage of the village.
