Area activities

The village of Albas is located in the Aude department of France (not to be confused with Albas in the Lot department of South Western France). The local area is commonly known as the Corbieres region, taking its name from the rocky mountains in this area. The Corbieres region is home to some excellent vineyards (especially close to Tauchan) and has some of the prettiest villages in France (such as Lagrasse, Termes, Dulhac and Durban-Corbieres). The area also features some Cathar castles, most notably at Peyrepertuse.

The village has a very small population of just 80 people - but as is often the case in villages of this size - the friendly local inhabitants form a tight bond with each other and it is surprising how many activities take place in the village

Close to the village there is a unique geological rock formation (dating to the Mesozoic to Quaternary periods) and excavations have found dinosaur fossil eggs. This area is now a popular hiking route. Archaeological excavations in the village itself have found artifacts dating back to the Iron age and the site was later settled by the Romans, possibly as a signal tower. Formal records of the village date back to 963 AD, where there is a reference to some form of fortified building in the village. Later, the village became an important centre for Iron ore mining.
