Additional Location Information
Limoux is perhaps best known for its Winter festival, Carnival or fête. It is generally referred to as Carnaval de Limoux in the French language. This takes place between January and Easter. As of 2011 the wine Festival "Toques et Clochers" will be held in Limoux every spring.The cafe scene is dominant in Limoux where food and drink represent the dominant cultural pastime.
The heart of the town is the place de la République, a wide square with some fine stone arcading and a number of timber framed houses. Limoux straddles the River Aude and the banks are lined with grand houses, especially on the eastern side, the so-called Petite Ville (lit. "Small City").
Limoux is an attractive place with a wonderful sense of fun. The town likes to party in a most unself-conscious way and for its own pleasure rather than for the sake of tourists. While worth visiting in itself, it is also an excellent base for discovering the history of the region and is ideally placed for exploring the coast, the mountains and some of the finest walking country in France.
Mirepoix: On the large central square you can still admire the half-timbered houses supported on wood pillars, creating a magnificent covered arcade. The ends of the joists of the richest houses are sculpted, and the most beautiful sculptures are on the house of the Justice du Seigneur, which became in 1500 the Maison des Consuls, showing women's faces, bearded heads, a tortoise and other fantastical images.
The little church of St Maurice built in 1298 by Jean de Lévis and his wife Constance de Foix was transformed over time into a cathedral. Today the cathedral of St Maurice has a single nave 48 m long, 24 m high, 22 m wide, a gothic gate and an elegant 60 m high pointed belltower. Of the cathedrals of Europe only that of Gerona in Spain has a wider nave. You can still admire a tabernacle, a Christ on the cross from the 14th century and seven paintings by Larivière-Vesontius.
Peyrefitte-du-Razès is a small village on the road midway between Limoux and Mirepoix with signage directing you to Domaine de Couchet.
