Introduction

Limoux is an attractive little town, best known for its colorful winter festival, Carneval de Limoux, held between January and Easter every year and conducted in the region's traditional language, Occitan. The carnival features costumed revelers and performers, with street dances and entertanment, and myriad other festivities besides. The town's other attribute is its locally-made sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux, blended from Mauzac, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc grapes, which has its roots in the ancient Vin de Blanquette that was invented here by monks in 1531. The town itself is centered around the spacious Place de République, lined with several quite lovely timber-frame houses, which showcases some exquisite stone arcading. Limoux is also noted for its lively café scene where food and wine are celebrated with a passion. Additionally, Limoux offers in itself a good base for exploring both the mountains and coast, with some of the best walking trails in all of France.

Location

Limoux is situated on the River Aude, on both banks of it, some 18 miles (31 km) south of Carcassonne in southern France.

How to Get There

Sightseeing

Limoux's principal draws, apart from its expansive, central square, Place de République, include the quaint Petiet Museum which houses the works of native Aude artists Marie Petiet and Achille Laugé as well as other impressionistic paintings; and Saint Jacque's Chapel which has in it a unique museum, Musée de Piano, devoted entirely to pianos, along with piano tools and vintage piano advertisements.
