The Alaric

Alaric, a name that clicks like a banner in the wind. It was the name of a Visigoth king who occupied the Languedoc region in the 5th Century of our era. It is said that his body was laid to rest in one of the caves of this mountain, northernmost spur of the Corbières region, which inherited his name. If you would like to discover an exceptional panorama, from Camplong d’Aude and Moux onward, a trail leads you to the observation post, the Signal de l’Alaric, at a height of 600 m. You will have a 360° panoramic view over the Montagne Noire, the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees. On a clear day, you may see the Canigou (the dog’s tooth), the Madres massif, the jagged Carlit, the pointed Bugarach, etc.
