Minerve, Menèrba in Occitan, is located in the department of Hérault in the Occitan region.

Historic capital of the Minervois country, this small town welcomes more than 300,000 visitors every year. Finding tourism and the production of quality wines to be the two pillars of its activity, Minerve has been included in the list of the Most Beautiful Villages on TF1. The commune's extraordinary natural environment (the Cesse and Brian gorges, natural bridge, causse) is the main reason for its tourist attraction, shared with its tragic history: the first pyre of the Albigensian Crusade.
