The construction of the Canal du Midi, by Pierre Paul Riquet, in the XNUMXth century, under Louis XIV, constituted for Roubia a commercial development, the port of Roubia being moreover one of the river ports of significant importance for the region of Upper Minervois.
The Canal is the property of Riquet's heirs until the Revolution. In 1858, the canal became state property.
The Argens-le Somail stage, 14.8 km long, required 8 relays and 24 horses. Each relay station was placed under the authority of a stable manager. The postilions were recruited among agricultural workers. The local craft industry provided all the equipment necessary for hauling, ropes, horse harnesses, shoeing.
Heritage interpretation panels have been installed in the village. Also follow the marked trail Les Trois Bosquets to discover the surroundings as well as dry stone heritage elements (bee walls).
