Mazamet owes its existence and its economic development to the Arnette River. It is the quality and the force of the tumultuous water flowing down the green slopes of the Montagne Noire that brought the industry to this town. Taking you on a journey along its banks, through hills and forests, this circuit will allow you to discover the industrial and human evolution that has taken place over the centuries. Just like a history book, 16 signs retrace the steps of the main elements of this exceptional adventure which, through the wool and leather industry, brought Mazamet and the surrounding Valley international acclaim. They show how the area has benefited since the Middle Ages due to the energy and the purity of the river’s water. After centuries of eventful activity, the Arnette River and surrounding valley has finally become a place of tranquility where the quality of this natural environment is respected and preserved. The circuit is the initiative of a partnership between the town of Mazamet, the Association of Heritage Promotion, and the mission for local employment.
