Montamel: Source et  Lavoir

  • Shady walk with places where water provides an invitation to rest awhile and dream. "Mont à miel" (hill of honey) is supposedly the origin of the name Montamel in Occitan. According to the writings of a learned local found in the Departemental archives, in the Middle Ages the Lord of Laroque used impose a levy payable in beeswax on his various fiefs. In Montamel, all the rent-payers were subject to this tax, which apparently served to light the castle ! According to the author, this intensive honey-producing activity in the village is proof of the origin of the name. Somewhat less romantic is the explanation that Montamel comes from "Amel", a personal name of Germanic origin.

    Itinéraire fait par une après-midi d'hiver légèrement grise, d'où une lumière douce et estompée sur ce beau parcours vallonné mais facile. A noter aussi de bien belles maisons.

  • trop de route

    quelques beaux sentiers mais beaucoup de route
