Located at the bottom of the Montagne Noire (literally: the Black Mountain) and in the Parc Naturel du Haut Languedoc (Nature Park of the High Languedoc), the charming village of Dourgne with its abbeys and chapels is a beautiful starting point for walks and treks in a natural and spiritual environment.
Located in an area inhabited by men since prehistoric times, the village of Dourgne will charm you with its small central square and its arcades but most of all, with the beauty of the surrounding landscape and its mountain paths climbing up to the top of a plateau, through woods, alongside little streams of crystal clear waters.
In the 1890's two benedictine abbeys have been erected in this place that favours meditation: the monastery of En Calcat is home to a community of monks from which originated Dom Robert, a local tapestry artist, while Ste Scholastique is a convent for nuns who live from the sales of their crafts.
The village is on one of the four Ways of St James and pilgrims and walkers enjoy the natural and spiritual environment.
