Château de Grézan nicknamed “Little Carcassonne”

Château de Grézan Art & Culture Centre near Montpellier is one of the jewels of the Biterrois wine chateaux. From the end of the 12th century to 1307, the Order of the Knights Templiers (a religious and military order from the Christian chivalry of the Middle Ages) formed commanderies throughout Europe, including one in Grézan. These commanderies were landholdings allowing, in particular, to raise funds intended to finance the Crusades in the Holy Land.
