LE BOIS DE LA TAMARISSIÈRE (TAMARISSIÈRE WOOD)

LA TAMARISSIERE
This pine and tamarisk wood gave its name to the village at its feet: La Tamarissière. It was planted at the end of the 18th century to fight against the silting up of the river Hérault and its mouth. The maritime pine forest is a classified natural heritage. Between the sea, the river and the reed beds of the Clôt, is also the kingdom of squirrels.

A possible landing zone during the Second World War, La Tamarissière was strongly fortified in order to lock the Hérault river, an easy maritime access to the land. Today, the bunker-infirmary type 638 built by the Germans is the only one open to visitors in the Mediterranean.

From April to September, part of the wood is reserved for camping.
