Over the water



Historical trail that traces the history of Mazamet along the Arnette and its current.
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.
