The route passes very close to the mysterious Capelette (small chapel) and crosses the Cadoule at Tourilles bridge, before reaching the ruins of a Knights Templar Commandery in Bannières. Then you explore Castries and its medieval heart, its ancient covered markets, its Coste square sheltered by the remains of a Romanesque church, the arches of its oil mill, its imposing church, and especially the château and its park and gardens, Languedoc’s little Versailles. Finally, after Colombier quarry, a listed site used for the construction of monuments, the path leads to Mas de Fondespierre house.
