Geocache Description:

Lastours

 

Les quatres châteaux de Lastours : Cabaret, Tour Régine, Fleur d'Espine et Quertinheux


Ces chateaux illustrent à la fois l'orgueil des seigneurs féodaux et l'émiettement de leur pouvoir.
Verrous du Cabardès, Dominant la vallée de l'Orbiel, tous ces châteaux ont longtemps contrôlé le passage vers les richesses minières de la Montagne noire. Jusqu'au milieu de ce siècle, l'usine Rabier y exerce une activité textile importante avant que le site ne soit reconverti en structure d'accueil touristique autour de l'ancien four et de la cheminée.

Depuis 1995, également, Lastours développe une activité thématique autour des mines et de la métallurgie de la Montagne Noire. Dans cette région très riche en fer, en cuivre, en plomb mais surtout en or.
