Caunes Minervois (Aude)
Caunes is one of the oldest villages in the Minervois. There was a Roman villa nearby ariound 400 A.D. and Charlemagne granted a band of monks title to the land where they began to construct a monastery in 791 A.D. The abbey and the village within its walls underwent centuries of construction and reconstruction, religious turmoil and warfare passing through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Revolution into modern times.
The village, population 1500, nestles against the slopes of the Montagne Noire, surrrounded by vineyards and communal forests. The church, refurbished in the pink and red-veined marble quarried nearby, remains in use for religious rites. The rest of the abbey is the major historical site in the Haut-Minervois. Besides displays relating to the history of the village, it serves as center for art and music in the region. The marble quarries continue to furnish stone for building and sculpture just as they did for Louis XIV. Commerce includes restaurants & a hotel.
