Maubec

Focus on...

Although little remains of the original 13th century village, its hydraulic heritage has survived the centuries. The villagers have shown great inventiveness and know-how in order to have access to this water since Roman times. At that time, nearly 40 wells, pumps, basins, fountains, windmills and norias were dotted around the village! In the middle of the 19th century, the old village was gradually abandoned in favour of the plain. The shops (café, bakery, grocery shop, restaurant, hotel) are now concentrated in the lower part of the village.

La Noria (route de Robion)

It was built at the end of the 18th century, beginning of the 19th century. The water was drawn by animal power: a donkey walked on the slabs around the central axis (picnic area on site).

Did you know that?

The origins of the name Maubec : Some says it's because the village was built on the wrong side of the hill (“ubac”).

The toponymy specialists agree to attach “beak” to the Celtic, spoken by the Gauls, with the notion of projecting rock, summit, or even fortification.
