Is it the holidays? Happiness never comes alone, each school holiday period is an opportunity to discover the history of the wind in Lauragais! On the outskirts of Nailloux, Calmont or Avignonet-Lauragais, you must have noticed these large wings ready to take off. Witnesses of the past or actors of the future, our mills and wind turbines will teach you an important part of the Lauragais identity.
Visits to the Six Ailes de Nailloux Mill
To enjoy your family vacation, offer your children or grandchildren the discovery of the fascinating world of cereals and millers at the Six Wing Mill from Nailloux. Several themes will be addressed:
- Cereals and their use
- The wind and its specificities
- The Lauragais and its landscape features
- The mill, its history and how it works
The little extra: the bread shaping workshop. Each participant will leave with their hot ball of bread, ready to eat!
Visits to the Avignonet-Lauragais wind farm
At the heart of the Avignonet-Lauragais wind farm, learn how do these steel giants watch over our hills. Perhaps this visit will lead you to some benevolent reflections on our energy consumption and on the evolution of our lifestyles.
