Discovering the Village…

The wine village Rieux-Minervois is home to a jewel of Romanesque architecture. The church Sainte Marie de l’Assomption is unique throughout the world because of its unusual heptagonal shape and attracts historians and architects from all around the world.

With more than 2,000 residents, the village provides a great infrastructure for daily life. Along with shopping in the quaint marketplace, life in the village also includes two bistros, summer festivals, flea markets (vide grenier) and classical concerts held in the church and castle.
