A rustic ‘Machu Picchu’

Take the Pinède de la Bade hike in Tourouzelle and treat yourself to a trip back in time. You will make a leap 150 years back in history, in the presence of the pine wood/pineda and the holm oaks/ausina, you will discover the ancient rabbit warrens/garenas dels conilhs, the capitelles/las cabanas and the protective walls. You will stroll along the paths, lined with dry-stone walls, and almost still be able to smell the sheep manure.

The Minervois paths will surprise you with their viewpoints, their peaceful and meditative atmosphere and the remains of the ancient activities in the garrigues... all this at a mere stone’s throw from civilization...
