Taulis, a small village in the middle of the green
The village of Taulis (12km of Amélie-les-Bains, alt.550.) is snuggled up in the middle of the greenery and the schists. We reach it by a long sinuous road offering magnificent points of view on Vallespir and plain of Roussillon. Mentioned for the first time in 853, the site of Taulis was however occupied from the Bronze Age, as gives evidence of it the cave of Balma in which were discovered diverse potteries exposed(explained) today to the house of the Archaeology and the Small business sector of Céret.
Elements of heritage.
The parochial church Saint Jean the Evangelist (in the end of the XIth century) contains a magnificent altarpiece built in the XVIIth century. As of numerous villages of Vallespir, Taulis, who is situated on the fact what we call the Road of the Iron, keep today still vestiges of this time(period) when the Catalan forges were full activity. This is the way we discover 2km after the village, a old) oven with ore of industrial architect of the end of the XIXth century.
