HistoryEdit

The abbey of Saint-Martin-Lys appears in the texts in 898 when the monk Leuva gave the monastery a vineyard located in Cailla . She then receives many donations throughout the Viscount Fenouillèdes . Pope Agapet II confirmed his possessions in 954.[3] The monks then cultivate vineyards, olive trees and cereals. The monastery has a tine or cellars where are brought to Brugens crops in the region, today in the municipality of Caudies Fenouilledes.[4]

GeographyEdit

Municipality located in the upper valley of the Aude, legally part of the Fenouillèdes, the small village of Saint-Martin-Lys is between two gorges (near the parade of Pierre-Lys ). Overlooked by two mountains, the village borders the Aude.[5][6][7]
