Heritage

THE COUNTY OF BOURDEAUX

The Bourdeaux region is in fact much larger than the canton which carries the same name. It includes the entire Roubion valley to the village of Pont de Barret which leads to the Montélimar plains. High grounds (the Saoû forest, Couspeau, Angèle, St Maurice...) overlook an uneven landscape marked by hills and terraces with many farms and hamlets.

The towers that mark the surrounding ridges are a reminder of feudal times where claims over regions such as Crest were disputed by the Valentinois Counts and the Bishop of Die. However, Protestantism affected the Bourdeaux region and its population the most.

Le Grand temple, the “great church” of Bourdeaux, the biggest protestant church of the Drôme Department, demonstrates the importance of the protestant religion in the region. Begun in the XVIIIth century as a catholic church, it was finished in 1806 as a protestant church, a temple. On the opposite side of the street, the former temple of Bourdeaux, became a Methodist chapel in the XIXth century, and is actually a private property.  

 

THE FAMILY CEMETERIES

At the establishment of the Reformation in France, there were only catholic cemeteries. Their blessed ground, could not accept "heretical" Christians: separated in their life and their faith, the Protestants and the Catholics would also be separated in their last rest. The Edict of Nantes, so attentive to avoid conflicts, orders that "all cities and places" are provided with a cemetery for those of the "reformed Religion". 

But at its Revocation, the protestant cemeteries are closed down. Logical measure: the renunciation of the "new converts" opened again their access to the parochial catholic cemeteries. However, at their death, many Protestants proclaim their loyalty to their former faith. They refuse the parochial cemetery and choose to be buried on their own property. So was born the tradition of "family cemeteries": some graves in a garden or a meadow, fenced or not by walls, sometimes indicated by a tree.

THE FOREST OF SAOÛ AND THE HUGUENOTS

During the religious conflicts in XVII° century, the forest becomes famous repeatedly: during the summer of 1683, about 300 Protestant captains of the region, felt threatened and gathered in the forest of Saoû. At the end of the worship to Bezaudun August 29th, 1683, the Huguenots of this “Eternal camp”, marched on Bourdeaux to face the catholic troops of the king (Dragoons).

 The pitched battle which followed left 120 deaths near Bourdeaux, at the locality of “Bourelles”.
In 1688, Isabeau Vincent, shepherdess on the Southern hillside of the mountain, becomes famous as the first "little prophet".
 
In 1700, the royal archers scatter hundreds of Protestants, gathered for a sermon "in the desert", place name of the Huguenots.
 
Four thematic hiking circuits allow to visit the whole local Protestant heritage.

Commentaires

Posté par Christian le 01/09/2019 :

 Un très bel endroit. Dommage... qu'il n'y ait, pour les randonneurs, qu'un lieu d'hébergement! La qualité de l'hébergement sous tente marabout est sommaire (pas d'électricité), les repas préparés par un traiteur ne sont pas adaptés à des randonneurs, mais les tarifs, eux, sont à la hauteur!!!



Posté par Christiane sur le chemin des Huguenots le 14/06/2019 :

 Nous nous étions arrêtés au gîte du col de la Chaudière,  Accueil très sympathique,  cadre magnifique,  chambres impeccables,  cuisine à disposition.  Merci aux sympathiques personnes qui avaient occupé le gîte la veille pour un mariage et dont certaines personnes étaient présentes et qui ont été généreuses et d'une discrétion exemplaire. Belle adresse à retenir. Encore Merci au propriétaire qui nous a indiqué le sentier derrière le gîte qui nous évitait un bon morceau de goudron.

Un site exceptionnel et très confortable.

Un accueil chaleureux à l'efficacité professionnelle.



Posté par Alain G and Co le 13/09/2017 :

Le gite du col de la chaudière se trouve dans un site exceptionnel.

Il est très bien rénové, spacieux et confortable.

L'accueil est chaleureux et d'une grande efficacité professionnelle.



Posté par Françoise Silvestre le 12/06/2017 :

Nous vous recommandons particulièrement le gîte du Col de la Chaudière, une ancienne auberge restaurée avec goût dans un cadre sublime, au pied du Veyou, l'un des sommets des Trois becs. Nous avons admiré depuis le jardin devant la belle bâtisse, le vol majestueux de vautours fauves. Un confort optimum et un accueil très chaleureux. Ajoutons à cela un petit déjeûner royal et un panier pique-nique généreux. A ne pas râter !

 Une bonne nouvelle arrive : un nouveau gîte doit s'ouvrir dès le mois de juin au col de La Chaudière

Attention : Le gîte d'étape de "La Table du Col" n'existe plus... Il ne reste plus que l'Arche des 3 Becs...



Posté par Denise le 27/06/2014 :

Je dois vous signaler que sur l’étape Bourdeaux – La Chaudière, à hauteur du Col de La Chaudière nous sommes arrivés après un orage dans les marnes noires, et là, nous avons pataugé pendant 1 heure dans une boue glissante (dangereux) en cherchant le chemin, il serait bon de signaler qu’en cas de pluie (dans les 24h précédentes) il vaut mieux emprunter la route qui retrouve le chemin plus bas en direction de Saillans.



Posté par Barbara le 26/08/2012 :

Depuis l'été 2012 s'est ouvert une deuxième possibilité d'hébergement au centre du village de La Chaudière.  Le "Gîte d'étape de la table du col". 

3 chambres de deux lits, aménagées simplement mais avec attention. Le restaurant local gère aussi ces chambres. (Voir contact sous rubrique "A proximité")

Posté par Nancy et Olivier le 17/04/2012 :

Attention ! Actuellement, le seul hébergement possible à la fin de cette étape est "L'Arche des 3 Becs" qui se situe à environ 1,2 km du hameau de La Chaudière : http://www.3becs.com
