Limoux

Posted by adminROCH

Wikipedia describes Limoux a commune and subprefecture in the Aude department, a part of the ancient Languedoc province and the present-day Occitanie region in southern France. It lies on the river Aude about 30 km due south of Carcassonne. Its vineyard is famous for being first to produce sparkling wine known as Blanquette de Limoux.

Start your visit to Limoux in the historic centre, an attractive area around the Place de la République with some 15th-16th century houses and other monuments and a pleasant spot to stop for lunch. There is a covered market here as well as an imposing fountain as well as a selection of cafes and small shops. Elsewhere in the town, you can see traces of the original fortified gateways, as well as a few medieval houses and renaissance period houses.
