Of its glorious Roman past, Narbonne has kept several vestiges, among which the highly symbolic via domitia. The privileged situation of this road, at the crossroads of ancient civilizations made it a major commercial line for the transportation of Mediterranean goods such as wine, olive oil, and ceramics.

Must see: the impressive collection of the Museum of Archaeology.From the 5th c. on, the building of the first cathedral Saint-Just-Saint-Pasteur brought fame to the town. You will enjoy visiting the imposing Palais des Archevêques (The Archbishops’ Palace) with the Passage de l’Ancre (Passage of the Anchor), the Cour de la Madeleine and its gardens. 

Towards Lézignan-Corbières

From Narbonne to the West, towards Bizanet, one reaches the massif of Fontfroide and its famous abbey, before wandering through the vines until you reach Lézignan-Corbières, capital of Corbières.
Must see: the typically Mediterranean market, a great opportunity to taste local wines and discover a town whose historical heritage in terms of wine-making is rich. Between 1600 and 1900, Léziagnan-Corbières was a dynamic commercial center, notably thanks to the opening of the Canal du Midi and the creation of the road network.
