Discover dolmens, dry-stone huts and lime kilns, as so many testimonies of a thousand-year-old human activity in Villeneuve-Minervois .
Some magnificent viewpoints await you along the journey.


From the parking lot of the Vitalis Cros Complex ( multi-purpose hall), take the path along the stadium. Turn right as you come out.

Follow the signs, first on the road, then quickly by the old windmill track.
Continue through the vineyards for 2.5km until you reach the Château de Villerambert.
Turn left immediately, on the path going up to the D289.
This path dominates the active Villerambert quarry .

Turn right. After a few hundred meters, a parking lot marks the site of the former Villeneuve quarry, the path leaves the D289 on the right. After 500m, it joins the D289 and leaves it again at a hairpin bend.
Then take the earth track on the left towards the West.
A beautiful view over the valley of the Aude and an old farmhouse awaits you. The next change of itinerary is a turn to the South (to the left), marking the approach to the highest point of the hike at an altitude of 555m/1820ft: a panorama over the Clamoux gorges.
