Cubieres sur Cinoble

Located a few kilometers west of the castles of Peyrepertuse and Queribus, on the border of the departments of Pyrénées Orientales and Aude, the small commune conceals an original and diversified natural heritage and landscape. The spectacular site of the Gorges de Galamus, is remarkable with the deep canyon dug by the waters of the Agly and the hermitage of Saint Antoine, built in a natural cavity of the cliff. What is known about the history of the village comes mainly from archival texts related to the 9th century abbey. Another account of the inquisition reveals some episodes of the history of the last Cathar perfect Belibaste born around 1280 in Cubières.
