When coming from the plain of The Dickrroise, Murviel appears fortified, perched above the houses huddled against each other, seeking the protection of the lord. The old village is built in circulade, this urbanism unique to the Languedoc Middle Ages, designed for defense in the face of external perils. A marked circuit leads through its alleys to the Gothic church and the terrace of the castle from where one discovers a magnificent panorama of the sea in the Caroux massif. But maybe at the turn of a street have you seen life-size rag dolls? They're Petetas. They go out in front of their landlord's house every summer. It was the Murviellois who invented them.
