The village of Avène with its circular architecture, is nestled along the bends of the Orb river and has continued to maintain its authentic character with narrow streets towered over by magnificent archways. It plays a central role in the Communauté de Communes Grand Orb. The recent discoveries of Roman ruins testify to ancient human presence in the Avène region.  In approximately 1874, the Avène spa was declared to be of public benefit, due to the results observed in the treatment of chronic and difficult to cure skin diseases (eczema, psoriasis..). This spring water emerges from the underground depths in the Languedoc region and has been used for over 250 years.
