MONTADY , Hérault – Patrimonio natural

Acerca de nosotros

This is a remarkable archeological site situated at the foot of the Oppidum d’Ensérune (an ancient hill fort). Originally an ancient brackish water marsh that was the source of various epidemics, it was cleaned up in 1270. Ditches radiating outwards from a central point like sunrays were built so that the 420 hectares of land could be worked. The network of canals allowed the water to drain from the perimeter to the centre. This water was then directed towards the Clavilongue stream using a gallery system some 1300 metres long. The whole ensemble is a masterpiece of mediaeval hydro-agricultural engineering. The Oppidum d’Ensérune also offers an exceptional viewpoint.
