Monze

Monze was an old fortified village on the “wool lane” to Carcassonne, and its only entrance was the nice three-arched bridge (XIII century) on the stream La Bretonne. The old town preserves the Romanesque-Gothic church of Saint Félix de Valois and a suggestive cemetery, where the XVI century burial place of a Compostelan pilgrim can be seen. The valuable stone is crowned with the Maltese cross. The village economy is based on wine growing. The wine growers’ cooperative of Monze counts on around fifteen grantor partners and approximately 400 hectares of vineyards.
