Cubières-sur-Cinoble - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Aude

Cubières-sur-Cinoble village is located at the east end of the township of Couiza Aude at the crossroads of ancient roads from Rennes-les-Bains and Tuchan. It is nestled in the Agly valley between the Pic de Bugarach (highest point of the Corbières with its 1231 meters), the remarkable Gorges de Galamus and the Cathar castles Country Puylaurens, Peyrepertuse and Quéribus.

The place Cubieres, bowl watered by three streams, the Cinoble the Embourdier and Saouzé, joining Agly, had naturally arouse the human presence on its territory since ancient times.

What is known about the history of Cubières-sur-Cinoble was primarily archival texts related to the abbey of the ninth century, which we lose all traces of activity after 1639 and the stories of the Inquisition revealing episodes of history of the last Cathar perfect Bélibaste born about 1280 Cubieres.

This sector is characterized by unspoilt nature, original and wild landscapes and a rich and varied heritage.

Agriculture, mainly related to livestock feed use and corn, has long prevailed in Cubières-sur-Cinoble and constituted the bulk of the resources of the local population. The vine was hardly worked; because of unfavorable weather conditions in this part of the Corbières and due to rural-operation has completely disappeared. The largely European populations (Germans, English, Belgian, Dutch, Irish and all regions of France) which gradually installed over the last 20 years have also brought a first stage of economic development based on the tourist trade, professional or craft.

Like many small rural villages have retained their a little "tired" side Cubieres transports us spontaneously at the time of our grandparents and of course the setting for the Festival d'Antan (demonstration of old crafts of yesteryear) organized each year in July.
