Our historical heritage :

The Castle:

Vestiges of the Catharism, the Castle stages its terraces in front of an exceptional landscape blocked to the horizon by the chain of Pyrenees. Set up below the village, the fortifications of the castle take place directly below the ravine of Vernassonne. The ruins of its donjon still amount to about twenty meters in height. Two restored rooms accommodate a museography on the monetary Treasury of Saissac compound of 2000 deniers dated 1270, in the effigy of Saint-Louis (one of the oldest medieval royal treasure discovered in Languedoc).

 

The museum of the Old Jobs :

Installed in a tower of the XIVth century, when are presented on three levels the traditional jobs and the everyday life of the inhabitants of the Black Mountain. In the summit, you will discover a viewpoint indicator and an exceptional panorama on Pyrenees.
