Renowned for the benefits of its spring water, the charming medieval village of Alet-les-Bains, in the upper Aude valley, has beautiful stone and timber-framed houses, as seen in the picturesque square, the Place de la République. Not far from there stand the remains of an ancient Benedictine monastery, built in ochre sandstone, which was founded in the 9th century, the Abbey Cathedral of Our Lady of Alet: the romantic ruins of a Romanesque apse, the unfinished Gothic choir and the chapter house of the northern entrance.

Fans of relaxation and swimming should be sure to sample the delights of the outdoor spring water swimming pool, which is open in July and August. Fans of whitewater sports can gleefully descend the Aude by canoe-kayak, raft or hydrospeed!

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.
