Mayronne(s) is a hamlet in the Corbieres hills, near Lagrasse. It hosts a stunning free sculpture trail 5km (two hours 30 minutes) long. There are permanent sculptures and an annual exhibition April – September. Sculptures are amusing, puzzling and breathtaking. The walk would be stunning even without the sculptures and it is a magical experience. Very few people know it’s there.
Mayronnes is a beautiful little village and the road to Mayronnes from Caunettes en Val is stunning. Lots of brave and incredibly fit people cycle it. Not me. I drive it. It is so lovely any time of year.
If you have some time and just want to do something beautiful pack a picnic and head to the Corbieres. Go to Mayronnes and walk the sculpture trail and then go into the village and walk around. It’s a lovely way to pass a morning or an afternoon.
