Alet-les-Bains - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Aude

Alet-les-Bains, Aleth ancient city and medieval city, situated in the heart of Cathar country, almost equidistant from the sea and the Pyrenees. Perched on a narrow alluvial plain along the right bank of the lazy river Aude and still angry, the small city two millennia, illuminated by the lavish midday sun, breathes and stirs in a sort of half-sleep rhythm of the seasons.

The small town, enjoying several hot springs, born of the alchemy of permanent waters west slopes of the Corbières plunging into the bowels of the earth, taking care of minerals giving them the virtues of the most healing, brushing his Heart melting calorie loading to stand out providing their warmth to men since time immemorial frequented those places, seems to have been favored by nature, because situated amidst the high hills between the Corbières and peak Brau, she seems to us dressed in a green area and its location midway of the course of the Aude, it lends itself readily to the activities of water sports and outdoor activities.

Still preferred because, despite the inevitable ravages of time, Alet-les-Bains who was yet in his time, a prosperous city at the center of the large Episcopal County Razes, has preserved within its walls, along its narrow streets its picturesque and authentic.
