The Col Saint-Louis bridge

The Col Saint-Louis bridge in Caudiès has the distinctive feature of being spiral-shaped.

Built in the 19th century to facilitate access between Perpignan and Quillan, this structure was the first toll bridge built after the Revolution.

From the Col Saint-Louis, hiking trails allow you to discover nature.

Discover Caudiès

Discover Caudiès

Caudiès de Fenouillèdes, on the border between the Pyrénées-Orientales and Aude departments, marks the entrance to the “Cathar Country” in Fenouillèdes.

At the foot of the Bugarach pech and the Boulzane valley, the village developed in the Middle Ages with the Castel Fizel castle, under the jurisdiction of the Viscounts of Fenouillet.
Under royal control since the Treaty of Corbeil in 1258, which attached Fenouillèdes to France, and until the Revolution, Caudiès-de-Fenouillèdes became a royal town, capital of the Fenouillèdes viguerie (jurisdiction of a magistrate or provost).

A tour of the village streets invites you to discover the half-timbered houses, the gates of the ancient fort, to the 15th-century hermitage of Notre Dame-de-Laval, or the irrigation canals.
